Bob Friedhoffer has a master's degree in the history and philosophy of science from the City University of New York. Also known as the Madman of Magic, he has been performing for children and young adults for 30 years. He lectures frequently on science and magic. His entertaining approach to science can be found in more than a dozen books written for Franklin Watts. Several of these books have won awards.From School Library Journal:
Gr 2-5-These titles present a variety of inventions, sports, food, holidays, and customs that originated in their respective countries. In each, glossy double-page spreads cover topics such as "Fashion" and "Music," illustrated with full-color photographs, reproductions, and drawings. A recipe, a pronunciation guide to some foreign words, lists of further reading, and organizations and informative on-line sites are also included. On the last page of each book, the author informs readers about something traditionally associated with the country which, in fact, began elsewhere. While these titles are not designed to replace the traditional packed-with-every-fact-you-will-ever-need references, they are colorful and stimulating books for a broad range of readers.-Linda W.
