Everyone knows the story about Ben Franklin, the key and the lightning bolt. But, do you know the one where Ben Franklin, dead for hundreds of years, is buried in a Philadelphia brownstone’s basement and is re-animated—more or less successfully–by yet another lightning bolt? That’s exactly what happens in Benjamin Franklinstein Lives!
When budding scientist, Victor Godwin, discovers a long hidden laboratory in his basement he gets sucked into a wild adventure that will leave kids laughing and maybe learning a something they didn’t expect.
Beginning with the goofy cover art of Franklin as a zombie, the story mixes fantasy, fact, mystery and mayhem as Victor and Ben race through Philadelphia trying to discover the whereabouts of the Modern Order of Prometheans. Wait a sec, the Modern Order of what?
If you can spare an hour or two to have some real –and a little unreal–fun read Ben Franklinstein Lives! to find out.
Oh, BTW, did I mention the volcano?
