From School Library Journal:

Grade 5-8-This biography describes the bacteriologist's many contributions to medicine and his honors, including a 1945 Nobel Prize. The text begins with Fleming's birth on a Scottish farm in 1881 and ends with his death in 1955. Plenty of anecdotal information is provided to pique readers' interest. Also, Hantula does a good job of explaining the importance of his subject's discoveries. Supplemental scientific topics and quotes from the scientist are highlighted in boxes. In addition, photos and reproductions, mainly in black and white, appear on almost every spread and include pictures of bacteria and of penicillin crystals. The large graphics supplement the text nicely, and the book's colorful layout will appeal to students.
