School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 6 Up-Tyson's biography depicts Marx as a workaholic with a genius for comedy. The story of his life and show-business career is presented chronologically and is deftly told in a simple style. The text is enhanced with quotes from Marx, his colleagues, and critics, and with good-quality, black-and-white photographs, which are interspersed throughout. An interesting portrait of a popular-culture legend.-Judie Porter, Media Services Center, Portsmouth School Department, RI
