Oh, no! Why on earth did they not do this one as a wordless picture book?
It does just the basic outline of Marceau's life, with no special emphasis on any one slice or chapter. I seem to prefer this latter approach as I see it done more now. But perhaps people are doing that with figures whose outlines have been done so many times that they need something new. Not a lot of Marcel Marceau biographies for kids out there to compete with this one. The notes at the end were interesting, including not only a more detailed text of biographical facts, but also some tips on mime.
