Gene Barretta is the author and illustrator of Now & Ben: The Modern Inventions of Benjamin Franklin, and Dear Deer, which was a Notable Children's Book in the Language Arts and listed on the Parenting Magazine Mom-Tested Books of the Year List. He holds a B.F.A. in Film Studies from New York University, and has worked for many years in film and television production. He lives in Wynnewood, Pennsylvania, with his wife and son.
Almost like his press people were putting in the spin and maybe even trying too hard to get him credit.
Just as in his earlier book Now and Ben, the author shows with whimsy how the past and present are connected while teaching a bit of history in a fun way.
If a children's work of non-fiction highlights a historical figure's work more than their life, that book tends to be written for older kids.
