Me & Mr. Bell

  Author:   Philip Roy    
  Publisher:  Nimbus Publishing

Alexander Graham Bell, scientist, engineer, and inventor of the telephone, was not only famous for his intelligence, but also for his kindness. In this wonderful story set in 1908, ten-year-old Eddie MacDonald shares the great inventor’s passion for problem solving and for long, contemplative walks in the fields above Bras d’Or Lake, a beautiful lake near Bell’s real-life residence in Cape Breton, Canada.

But Mr. Bell is known all around the world for being smart and Eddie is just a local farm boy, struggling to learn to read and write. After a few chance encounters the elderly Mr. Bell befriends the young boy and takes an interest in his struggle. He encourages Eddie to celebrate his successes and never give up.

When Mr. Bell’s long ambition for manned flight results in the Silver Dart soaring over Bras d’Or Lake, Eddie is inspired to find creative solutions to his own challenges.
