She was a bril­liant sci­en­tist, a staunch sup­porter of equal rights for women, a world trav­eler, a two-time No­bel Prize win­ner, and a de­voted wife and mother. Marie Curie’s ded­i­ca­tion and com­pas­sion shine in this com­pelling bi­og­ra­phy. Color­fully cre­ative art­work re­flects a life filled with dis­cov­er­ies, from her child­hood in Poland as a brainy, wild-haired lit­tle sis­ter to her ground­break­ing work in ra­dioac­tiv­ity, her hu­man­i­tar­ian ef­forts on the front lines of World War I, and her tri­umph as a re­spected mind in physics, chem­istry, and ra­di­a­tion.
