This is the first book I have read in the Polk Street Kids series.
Overall, a good story with a nice morale at the end. Not a lot happens, but it was an interesting way to incorporate fiction and non-fiction. Some awkwardness in events that were a little confusing such as Beast telling Mrs. Miller she was "pretty good" when she smiled or Beast actually thinking he was supposed to write a report about Benjamin in another class rather than Benjamin Franklin. Just weird little things that didn't quite make sense.
I liked that this book included a short guide to visiting Philadelphia with maps and suggestions of places to go.
