I received this book as part of LibraryThing's Early Reviewers program in exchange for an honest review Thanks to LT and the PublisherI read this to my two kids at bedtime who are 10 and 65 years old On the whole we really enjoyed it The art is really fantastic and the level was just right for entertaining both of them it doesn't feel dumbed down at all for kids It gives a great overview to Tesla's life in an engaging wayHowever we all wished that there was a little meat to this we wanted The ending felt a bit abrupt and we wondered what else Tesla had done I understand it's a kids' picture book but at the level it's written at it feels like it could have been a bit longer and have been successfulThe only other uibble I have is the cover For a book with such great illustrations the cover beige really is sooooo bland I know it's part of the Great Ideas Series and I get that some uniformity for the books might be desirable But honestly even though we should never judge a book by its cover the truth is we do And if I had seen this on my library's or bookstore's bookshelf I probably would have passed right over it because the cover is so completely forgettable Come on publishers Such great art to choose from please put some on the cover prominently
