This book is suitable for readers of ages 9-12. Combining the exciting style of manga graphics with biography, history, and science, these dynamic accounts of great leaders are accessible and entertaining to today's children, as well as educational - each story is accompanied by a time line that puts the story's events in historical perspective. Visually stunning, this series is a beautiful illustration of important people and events, sure to hook young readers on history and the written word. Manga, one of the fastest growing segments of children's literature, is incredibly popular amongst school-age children and lends itself exceptionally well to the vivid stories in this series. A genius of enormous accomplishment, Albert Einstein overcame numerous hardships - separation from his family, religious discrimination, and the political turmoil of his day - to become one of the greatest minds of the 20th century. As a young boy, Einstein's unending curiosity and constant questioning earned him the reputation of being unfocused and inattentive.
His story, enriched by a glossary of scientific terms and a time line, will inspire young readers as they learn what drove one the most gifted scientists who ever lived.
