Mesmerized: How Ben Franklin Solved a Mystery that Baffled All of France by Mara Rockliff (Author), Iacopo Bruno (Illustrator)
Scientific method and history together in one book as Benjamin Franklin debunks mesmerism in France in the late 1700s. The book has excellent illustrations, facts and graphics and a very good explanation of the scientific method along with the story of Ben Franklin and how he debunked mesmerism on a visit to Paris. I enjoyed the story very much and I think it will be an excellent addition to libraries and schools.
