JUVENILE NONFICTION / Biography & Autobiography / Historical
Marie Curie was a brilliant scientist who coined the term 'radioactivity', discovered polonium and radium, and helped develop treatments for cancer. She was the first woman to win a Nobel Prize, but her dedication to physics ultimately caused her death from radiation.

From artists to aviators and scientists to revolutionaries, Little Guides to Great Lives is a brand new series of small-format guides introducing children to the most inspirational figures from history in a fun, accessible way. Launching with Leonardo da Vinci, Marie Curie, Nelson Mandela, and Amelia Earhart, Little Guides to Great Lives tells the stories of the most amazing people from all over the world and across history, with full-color illustrations and fresh design to bring their incredible stories to life.

Isabel Thomas is a children's author and editor, specialising in people, science, and nature. She has written for many publishers including Bloomsbury, Collins Big Cat, Dorling Kindersley, Oxford University Press, and Laurence King.

Anke Weckmann is a German-born freelance illustrator, who honed her craft at Camberwell College of Art and Kingston University. Her clients include the Times, the Guardian, and Time Out New York. She lives in London.
