Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Monserrat Urena
This graphic novel highlights the achievements and contributions Marie Curie's lifelong research had in the fields of physics, chemistry, and medicine. Through colorful illustrations and simple dialogue the reader is drawn into the Marie Curie's life, beginning with 1897. The work also does not gloss over the aftereffects of working with radiation and how this contributed if not directly caused the death of Marie Curie and her husband, Pierre. The interspersing of extra pieces of information gives intriguing insight to the flow of the dialogue. The text also effectively manages to make Madame Curie's work accessible to young children, and would be a valuable asset to have in the classroom. It also contains a useful glossary, bibliography, and a list of related, safe, age-appropriate Internet sites.
