From the best-selling author behind My Weird School: a quirky new biography series that casts fresh light on high-interest historic figures.
Did you know that Albert Einstein was a high school dropout, and that he failed his physics class when he finally made it to college? Or that when he died, his brain and eyeballs were removed from his body? Ever wondered why his hair looked so wild? Siblings Paige and Turner do—and they’ve collected some of the kookiest and most unusual facts about the world-famous scientist, from his childhood and school days through his time studying relativity and working on the atomic bomb.
Narrated by the two spirited siblings and animated by Allison Steinfeld’s upbeat illustrations, Albert Einstein Was a Dope? expertly balances authoritative information with Dan Gutman’s signature zany humor.
Dan Gutman is the New York Times best-selling author of the Genius Files series, the My Weird School series, and his baseball card adventure series. Dan has received nineteen state book awards. He lives in New York City with his wife, Nina.
Combining Gutman’s ongoing interest in biography with his talent for humor, this engaging new series for young readers is a winner.
