Cynthia S. Becker
Illustrated by Benjamin Hummel

Nineteen-year-old Ike Hoover was sent to the White House in 1891 by the Edison Electric Company to assist in the wiring of the White House for electric lights. Like many Americans at the time, President Benjamin Harrison and his wife were extremely afraid of electricity. In fact, the Harrisons were so afraid they didnít want to turn the lights on and off. After completing the wiring job, Ike was asked to stick around to make the transition to electric lights easier.

Cynthia Becker relates this bit of American history with wit and clarity, and Colorado artist Benjamin Hummel brings the story to life with outstanding illustrations.

Ages 5 and up.
