Did you know that Isaac Newton invented calculus, was the warden of Britain s Royal Mint, and built a model of a mill when he was only 11 years old ? There are four chapters in this book, each covering different accomplishments of his life. It is stated that, although discovered more than 300 years ago, Isaac Newton s laws of motion still help scientists calculate orbits and send spacecraft to other planets. It is amazing how his interest began with the mill he built. He wondered if something other than water could turn the wheel. I particularly liked the way Newton s thoughts are shown through both words and illustrations. These illustrations make it clear to the reader why something might work better. This book is written in the graphic novel format, a favorite of mine! It makes it perfect for students who are reluctant readers and never seem to finish a book on their own. Young adults who want to read anything they can get their hands on will also enjoy the graphics and fast-paced text. The full-color graphics make an enormous impact on the story. Vocabulary has been well selected and this book is an excellent resource that could be used for writing a summary, a book report, or as a source for research. At the end of the book, the author includes several pages with more facts, a glossary, a Read More section, Internet sites, a bibliography and an index. This book should be in all science classrooms, school libraries, and home reference collections. I highly recommend this book. --Children's Literature Comprehensive Database, January 2007
