Description
This biography--perfect for middle-grade readers--tells the life story of Clarence Birdseye, the man who revolutionized the frozen food industry, and is adapted from Mark Kurlansky's adult work Birdseye: The Adventures of a Curious Man. Adventurer and inventor Clarence Birdseye had a fascination with food preservation that led him to develop and patent the Birdseye freezing process and start the company that still bears his name today. His limitless curiosity spurred his other inventions, including the electric sunlamp, an improved incandescent lightbulb, and a harpoon gun to tag finback whales. This truestory of an early entrepreneur isas thrilling as the story of Steve Jobs or Mark Zuckerberg. Simultaneously available ina hardcover and trade paperback edition. Each edition includes an 8-page black-and-white photo insert.
