When the American Revolution was going strong, Benjamin Franklin went to France to charm Louis XVI and Queen Marie Antoinette into sending help to the Americans fighting the war. When he arrived, the Parisians were obsessed with the idea of science and a man named Dr. Mesmer. Dr. Mesmer was flamboyant and mysterious, making impossible things happened and curing people of their diseases. Some people wondered if all the people were being fooled. Ben used the scientific method to discover what the secrets were behind Dr. Mesmer’s act and managed to get help from the French government to assist in winning the war.

This educational book is brilliantly illustrated and cleverly explained. There are explanations of the history of the time, the steps of the scientific method, and a section after the story to explain more about the events described in the book. This book is an excellent introduction to a key part of American history and how the scientific method can be used to disprove things scientifically. Teachers will love having this resource to show their students these concepts with the beautiful illustrations, and young science lovers will enjoy this true story about how Benjamin Franklin used science to help save America and stop people from being fooled.

I had mixed feelings about this book, Mesmerized, after reading it. What I liked was the connection of the scientific method to the plot of Benjamin Franklin's experience with a hypnotist. What I didn't like about the book was the type of organization in the book. On some of the pages the text jumped all over the page and I found it hard to follow. If I can get over that. aspect, it is a nice informative book. The big idea of the book is to follow the scientific method to discover and figure out your world. ( )

Fun illustrations, but erratic text. ( )

Mesmerized is a nonfiction book written by Mara Rockliff. The book is not only a biography of Franz Anton Mesmer featuring Benjamin Franklin. The book also introduces the reader to the scientific method and shows how Benjamin Franklin used the scientific method to discredit Mesmer and his magical powers.

Franklin is sent to France to try and convince King Louis the Sixteenth and Queen Maire Antoinette to help fincance the American Revolution. When he arrived everyone was talking about how Mesmer could cure any and everything. Doctors were complaining to the king that their patients have lost faith in real medicine. The king called on Franklin to help him solve this dilemma. Franklin used the scientific method to expose Mesmer and his powers.

Through reading this book the reader learns about the scientific method, the origin of the word mesmerized, a history lesson about the American Revolution and Frances involvement. The book also talks about hypnosis, the placebo effect and how from this came the process for testing a new medication that is still used today. The illustrations done by Iacopo Bruno allows the reader to see how people during this time period dressed, which was one of my favorite things about the book. ( )
