The Story of Alexander Graham Bell.
In 1865, when Harriet is five, an attack of scarlet fever destroys her hearing. Yet she eventually learns to speak clearly - thanks to a very special teacher, Professor Bell. Inspired by his work with deaf children, Alexander Graham Bell is building an extraordinary new device, the telephone, that can send words along electric wires. But he has little money to pay for his experiments, and another inventor is fast catching up. Fascinated, Harriet watches her teacher's progress, knowing she is seeing history in the making.
