A wonderful book about Glenn Gould. I like how it's broken up into such manageable, kid-sized sections. It reveals Gould's brilliance and his oddness in a way that encourages readers to accept idiosyncrasy, rather than judge it. The illustrations compliment the text week. Recommended for the classroom for discussion of a wide variety of topics.
