The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind (Picture Book Edition)  

By William Kamkwamba, Bryan Mealer, & Elizabeth Zunon (illustrator)

“When fourteen-year-old William Kamkwamba’s Malawi village was hit by a drought, everyone’s crops began to fail. Without enough money for food, let alone school, William spent his days in the library . . . and figured out how to bring electricity to his village. Persevering against the odds, William built a functioning windmill out of junkyard scraps, and thus became the local hero who harnessed the wind.”
