I received the book for free through Goodreads Giveaways. I wanted to know more about him, and this book explains a great deal of how he grew up and the reasons he became the greatest mime. I now admire him more than I ever did. To help others during the war, and save their lives, as a young man, was so amazing. This is a great book for young people and old. A absolutely wonderful read!

Another wonderful biography book about a person I knew virtually nothing about! This man is a wonderful role model for bravery, standing up for what you believe, and not being afraid to do the right thing even though it may be hard. I loved the character traits they focused on in this story and was fascinated to read about who he was and what he accomplished in his life...even if mimes are still a little scary to me!
In my mind I see Marcel Marceau in black and white since that's how I saw when he performed on TV in the 1960s. Never knew his background, and so this was fascinating to me - that he was jewish, worked for the French resistance,etc. How this fed his art. Good job of presenting Marceau's early life.

A very quick read about Marcel Marceau's life.

While there was a heavy focus on Marceau's early life, I learned quite a bit about the man that I did not know before. He was not just a mime, but a forger for the French Resistance, and helped smuggle children out of France to safety.

Simple picture book biography but does present some interesting information about this fascinating man.

I knew Marcel Marceau was a mime, but I didn't know about his role in the French Resistance in WWII!

I loved reading the story of Marcel especially the part about him as a young boy in Nazi occupied France.

Just okay for me. I'm sure some of my fourth graders would enjoy it though.
