Publisher's Summary

A boy rides a bicycle down a dusty road. But in his mind, he envisions himself traveling at a speed beyond imagining, on a beam of light. This brilliant mind will one day offer up some of the most revolutionary ideas ever conceived. From a boy endlessly fascinated by the wonders around him, Albert Einstein ultimately grows into a man of genius recognized the world over for profoundly illuminating our understanding of the universe. Jennifer Berne and Vladimir Radunsky invite the reader to travel along with Einstein on a journey full of curiosity, laughter, and scientific discovery. Parents and children alike will appreciate this moving story of the powerful difference imagination can make in any life.


What the Critics Say

"Sallis has always been the master of doing more with less, as he demonstrates once again with this startling experimental novel...The theme of working with 'what you have left, ' a constant in Sallis's world, permeates every sentence of this slim, insightful work." (Publishers Weekly starred review)

The couple of dollars I paid were too much.

Terrible. I got it for the grandkids, but there is nothing to it. Don't bother.
