I love picture book biographies and this series from Canadian author Monica Kulling is one of my favourites. This time she features someone more well-known than in the previous books but the invention will be unusual to children of today and yet it will show them the simple beginnings of today's "wireless" technology. Marconi's story is not particularly exciting but it shows the determination of someone who studied for the joy of it as a child (at home, with tutors) and who had perseverance as a young man to realize the dreams he believed in even when they are slow to be fulfilled. This book brings with it a new illustrator to the series and I just loved Rudnicki's attention to style and detail, especially the patterns and designs on clothing and fabric. Another satisfying entry in the Great Ideas series! ( )
