True Kelley lives in Warner, New Hampshire.From Booklist:
Ages 5^-8. Branley practically wrote the book on bringing science down to kid level. This entry in his Let's-Read-and-Find-Out-Science series smoothly describes how magnets work and includes a couple of nearly foolproof experiments for making a magnet and a compass. Kelly's illustrations are always a delight--as they are here--employing bright, splashy watercolors that make scientific exploration look like the fun it ought to be. Denia Hester
