Marie Curie by Kathleen Krull ; illustrations by Boris Kulikov
I found this biography to be full of interesting tidbits. For some reason, I have always thought that Marie Curie's place in history was more modern than it was. Her achievements are even more impressive to me now that I realize that she did so much before even the beginning of the twentieth century. It was fascinating to see how Marie Curie's timeline led to the development of the atomic bomb (having just read Bomb, by Steve Sheinkin, this was a great preface). Marie Curie's affair, her work during World War I, and the scientific and general success of her daughters and granddaughters were all great parts of this story.
