Albert Einstein

Albert Einstein

Author: Kathleen Krull Narrator: Tavia Gilbert Release Date: 01/06/2020

Albert Einstein: his name has become a synonym for genius. His wild case of bedhead and playful sense of humor made him a media superstar—the first, maybe only, scientist-celebrity. He wasn’t much for lab work—in fact he had a tendency to blow up experiments. What he liked to do was think—not in words, but in “thought experiments.” What was the result of all his thinking? Nothing less than the overturning of Newtonian physics. Once again, Kathleen Krull delivers a witty and astute look at one of the true Giants of Science, and the turbulent times in which he lived.

Benjamin Franklin

Benjamin Franklin

Author: Kathleen Krull Narrator: Tavia Gilbert Release Date: 01/08/2020

Sure, almost all kids know Benjamin Franklin as one of America’s Founding Fathers, a man with a hand in both the Declaration of Independence and the US Constitution. And they may even have some vague idea that he once flew a kite during a lightning storm. What Kathleen Krull sets out to do in this very different biography is show Ben Franklin as the “natural philosopher” (the term for scientists back in the 1700s), whose experiments led to important discoveries about the nature of electricity—including his famous demonstration that electricity and lightning were one and the same. As always, this much-lauded series presents a true Giant of Science in a juicily anecdotal way. This is social history at its best … who knew that Franklin became such a megastar that Paris shops sold Ben dolls, Ben ashtrays, and even Ben wallpaper? Witty and engaging, this is a worthy addition to the Giants of Science series.

Big Wig

Author: Kathleen Krull Narrator: Eliza Foss Release Date: 01/07/2011

By blending historical details with "amusing anecdotes that put flesh and blood on dry literary bones," best-selling kids author Kathleen Krull "knows exactly how to captivate her audience" (Publishers Weekly).

Charles Darwin

Charles Darwin

Author: Kathleen Krull Narrator: Tavia Gilbert Release Date: 01/07/2020

All his life, Charles Darwin hated controversy. Yet he takes his place among the Giants of Science for what remains an immensely controversial subject: the theory of evolution. Darwin began piecing together his explanation for how all living things change or adapt during his five-year voyage on the HMS Beagle. But it took him twenty years to go public, for fear of the backlash his theory would cause. Once again, Kathleen Krull delivers a witty and astute picture of one of history’s greatest scientists.

Author: Kathleen Krull Narrator: Tavia Gilbert Release Date: 01/03/2020

Kathleen Krull’s biographies for young readers have received accolades from publications such as Publishers Weekly and School Library Journal, and here she profiles Sir Isaac Newton—the father of calculus and the man who pioneered studies of gravity What was Isaac Newton like? Secretive, vindictive, withdrawn, obsessive, and, oh, yes, brilliant. His imagination was so large that, just “by thinking on it,” he invented calculus and figured out the scientific explanation of gravity. Yet Newton was so small-minded that he set out to destroy other scientists who dared question his findings. This compelling portrait of Newton, contradictions and all, places him against the backdrop of 17th-century England, a time of plague, the Great Fire of London, and two revolutions. Krull details Newton’s lonely childhood, his education, and his sometimes tumultuous relationship with contemporaries in this captivating and concise look at one of history’s greatest geniuses.
