Frédéric Morlot, Anne-Margot Ramstein: Albert Einstein's Bright Ideas

Frédéric Morlot, Anne-Margot Ramstein

Albert Einstein's Bright Ideas

Translated by Anna Street

Softcover, 64 pages

The young Albert Einstein has a very important job: he must deliver electricity to the big Oktoberfest celebration in Munich. As he hurries from one merry-go-round to another, nothing seems to be going as planned. With his sister, Maja, Heinrich the dog, and Niels Bohr, a qualified dwarf-thrower, can he win a battle against the laws of the universe? The key just may lie in the question of whether a dumpling can fly faster than light.
