Reviews

"While many know about Henry Ford's automobiles and assembly line refinements, Thomas's latest nonfiction work describes his fascination with the soybean. Vibrant shades of yellow, green, and blue dominate Fotheringham's digital illustrations, which feature farming and factory scenes and play with scale. A detailed, bean-filled look at an auto tycoon's lesser-known passion." -- Publishers Weekly


"(F)ascinating... Fotheringham's illustrations are stunning digital art pieces that supplement the narrative with additional information. This engaging story is ideal for anyone looking to add to their collections on American history or STEAM." -- Booklist
