    Who Was Thomas Alva Edison? by Margaret Frith History - World :: ALL HISTORY - WORLD

    The “Who Was” series of books are easy-to-read biographies with engaging stories that provide factual information about the lives of key figures from history.

    One day in 1882, Thomas Edison flipped a switch that lit up lower Manhattan with incandescent light and changed the way people live ever after. The electric light bulb was only one of thousands of Edison’s inventions, which include the phonograph and the kinetoscope, an early precursor to the movie camera. As a boy, observing a robin catch a worm and then take flight, he fed a playmate a mixture of worms and water to see if she could fly! Here’s an accessible, appealing biography with 100 black-and-white illustrations.
