When Ben Franklin discovers that a new and fascinating doctor is curing illnesses and controlling thoughts in France, he investigates this “mesmerizing” mystery. Dr. Mesmer seemingly controls his patients’ minds with the use of an iron wand. Ben Franklin uses the scientific method to observe, hypothesize, and test this phenomenon and discover the truth behind the magic. This book of funny illustrations and fanciful typography exposes an important moment in the history of science. The story is fun to read and also helpful to anyone interested in learning more about Ben Franklin or the scientific method.
