2016 is the 100th anniversary of Albert Einstein’s Theory of Relativity; isn’t it about time he was the subject of a graphic biography? In Corinne Maier and Anne Simon’s wry graphic novel, the German-born physicist comes to life, alongside his influential work in physics, his personal struggles at home and the delight he found in friendship. Learning isn’t always fun, but with Albert under the spotlight, it will be!
In a deft translation, Maier?s sharp, clever dialogue gives this portrayal a rapid pace, matched by Simon?s energetic and spirited art. Though her figures are drawn in a relatively simple cartoon style, Simon?s adroit panel and page composition illustrate not only Einstein?s life but the wonders of the cosmos. […] The savvy script and illustration celebrate Einstein?s life and work in a memorably imaginative visual saga.—Publishers Weekly
