Booklist Review: "Nothing about 10-year-old Nolan Stanberry's summer vacation has gone as planned. In the aftermath of his parents' divorce, Nolan's father left for London, and Nolan's mother, the author-illustrator of a popular children's series, is holed up in her attic studio with a bad bout of writer's block. Nolan, meanwhile, is stuck caring for his spunky kid sister, Olive. But when a mysterious crystal radio set appears on the Stanberry's doorstep, things turn from mundane to insane in a matter of seconds: a few flicks of a lever have brought Benjamin Franklin staggering into twenty-first-century Rolling Hills, Illinois and Ben is one busy guy. While Ben Franklin and Revolutionary-era time travel is no stranger to recent middle-grade romps, Fleming's portrayal of the twinkly-eyed Founding Father as an impulsive adventurer and avid storyteller propels the narrative to subtly educational, hilarious heights. Fearing's interspersed graphic-novel-style panels further illuminate Ben's most crucial societal contributions, from libraries and electricity to swim fins. With handy bibliographic resources, hearty characters, and the promise of a sequel, this is, as Ben would say, an all-around jolly lark. --Shemroske, Briana Copyright 2018 Booklist"
