Synopsis

Magic Mr. Edison by Andrew Melrose

When a tramcar frightens Dan's dog Charlie one evening, the chase leads them through a maze of busy Victorian New York streets to the house of Mr Thomas Edison. Dan is fascinated to discover the secrets of Mr Edison's light bulb, and dreams of a world where he'll have electric light at the pull of a simple switch. A dramatic story that recreates historical experiences and makes them memorable and relevant to the modern child's point of view.
