Reviews 1

Horn Book Review

Intended for reluctant readers, these comic-book biographies convey the basic accomplishments of their subjects. Krohn adequately presents the controversial and groundbreaking nature of Goodall's work studying animal behavior. Olson covers the racial tensions and hurdles Carver faced but only briefly describes the value of his contributions. Both titles suffer from dated art, slapdash layouts, and redundancies. Reading list. Bib., glos., ind. [Review covers these Graphic Library: Graphic Biographies titles: Jane Goodall and George Washington Carver.] (c) Copyright 2010.
