Book Review:

This book is a marvelous young readers’ adaptation of the popular “adult” book Elon Musk: Tesla, SpaceX, and the Quest for a Fantastic Future. It is the biography of Elon Musk, told with information received after the author was given exclusive access to him, his family, and his friends. It tells the story of his life from being a child in South Africa to being arguably the most prominent inventor of our time. This is crucial for students in upper elementary school or early middle school to read. History is happening now and it’s more important than ever that our kids know about the incredible people behind some incredible movements. This is a must-have for your library.
