The Boy Who Invented TV: The Story of Philo Farnsworth by Kathleen Krull, Greg Couch (Illustrator) , 40 pages, read by Angie, on 01/10/2012

This is an interesting picture book biography. The story of Philo’s invention of TV is told in a narrative style that is easy to read. The illustrations are ok and do help the story. I enjoyed the book, but wish there was more somehow. I found the author’s note at the end about his fight with RCA very interesting and am not sure why this wasn’t included in the text of the story.
