"Another wonderful addition to the series." - School Library Journal
&nbsp
Did you know that it's believed Galileo was scolded for sassing his mom? That Isaac Newton loved to examine soap bubbles? That Albert Einstein loved to collect joke books, and&nbspthat the geneticist Barbara McClintock wore a Groucho Marx disguise in public? With juicy tidbits about everything from favorite foods to first loves, the subjects of Lives of the Scientists: Experiments, Explosions (and What the Neighbors Thought) are revealed as creative, bold, and sometimes eccentric.

Editorial Reviews

Mightily entertaining." - Kirkus "This collective biography is perfectly suited to thematic research as well as to reading for pleasure." - Booklist "Another wonderful addition to the series, detailing common knowledge and little-known facts about historical figures." - School Library Journal "Yes! Krull and Hewitt are back with another of those books, the eighth entry in their delightful Lives of . . . series." - Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books "Eight short, lively chapters introduce twenty influential scientists of the modern era. Krull emphasizes memorable, and often humorously indiosyncratic, character traits." - The Horn Book Magazine "
