A good introduction to the life of Charlie Chaplin even though, as is the case with several of Sid Fleischman's biographies, the author seems to have trouble getting out of the way. He uses prose in an unusual and sometimes affected fashion. This aside, this is a clear, readable, and really interesting biography for 6th graders and up. Photos are well placed and the font is big enough so that kids can roll right along, despite the thickness of the book.
