The Boy Who Invented TV: The Story of Philo Farnsworth

Written by Kathleen Krull and Illustrated by Greg Couch

A picture biography of Philo Farnsworth, the boy genius who invented television. Building on his early interest in electricity and machines, Farnsworth drew inspiration from observing parallel rows of overturned soil in a potato field and seeing a way to “make pictures fly in the air.” Eight years later, he transmitted his first television image.
