At first when I started reading the book I thought "this is not fun to read" but as I got into it I saw that it was talking about Ben Franklin (Benjamin Franklin). After I knew it was talking about him I was so interested because I wanted to learn about Ben. My favorite part in the story is when the book says that people put chickens and pigs in a hot air balloon. Ben and another person gets in the hot air balloon and they fly seven miles, then Ben runs back to his house and writes in his Journal what he figured out.
