Editorial Review

The New York Times Book Review

Cover: Marcel Marceau: Master of Mime

“Far more visually arresting is ‘Marcel Marceau: Master of Mime,’ which showcases the atmospheric mixed media artwork of Manon Gauthier, a finalist for the Governor General of Canada Awards, the Canadian equivalent of the Caldecott for illustrators. While the art and layout are structured like a picture book for young children, the text is pitched for children older than 10: The French Resistance is mentioned without context or explanation, for example, as are identity cards and labor camps. But as a read-aloud for older children who will tolerate the format, and with sufficient background information from those versed in the history, the book works, largely on the strength of its remarkable subject and striking visuals.” —The New York Times Book Review
