Nothing wrong with this book, but not nearly as good as Giblin's work. This one does not mention Benjamin's son who was a royal governor and the estrangement between them, or the long separations between Ben and his wife, Deborah, as the other does.

My seven year old grandson is really enjoying this series of biographies! We wish they were available in the stores not just online! Very well written.
