Boris Kulikov recently illustrated Morris the Artist by Lore Segal, Leonardo da Vinci and Isaac Newton the first two Giants of Science titles. He currently lives in New York City.From School Library Journal:
Grade 6-9–This biography begins with a brief look at Freud's childhood, focusing on his role as his mother's golden Sigi and the extremes to which his family went to cater to his needs (e.g., he had his own room, while the rest of his large family crowded into three bedrooms). Krull shows that he continued in this vein later on, expecting to be adored and catered to by his wife and colleagues. Most of the book deals with Freud's adult life, focusing on his drive not only to make progress in understanding the human mind, but also to live out his mother's dream that he make a name for himself. His theories are explained, and the author also discusses the ways in which later generations of psychoanalysts found his work simplistic, sexist, or otherwise limited, but also groundbreaking for their time. Freud is depicted as a complex human being: dedicated, driven, often egotistical, but also as a caring man who loved his family and who wanted to help his patients. Sophisticated cartoon pen-and-ink drawings add to the text. Catherine Reef's Sigmund Freud (Clarion, 2001) has more child appeal with its extensive use of photographs. For libraries wanting another biography on Freud, Krull provides a worthy addition.–Nancy Silverrod, San Francisco Public Library
