No matter how busy he was, Ben Franklin always found time to try out new ideas. Such as a remote control lock (so he could stay in bed and lock his door), a rcoking chair (which powered a fan), and a windmill (to turn his meat roaster). Aside from being a man of ideas, he was an ambassador to England, a printger, an almanac maker, a politician, and even a vegetarian (for a while). You will learn about all of this plus more in the wonderful book.
