Review:

This new graphic nonfiction series offers biographical treatments that highlight a technological breakthrough or innovation. Though produced by various illustrators, titles are visually similar: enticing covers, dynamic fonts, bold colors, and vibrant illustrations. Comic book-style word balloons feature fairly sophisticated vocabulary and occasional quotes or other primary source material. Each selection includes titled chapters, a table of contents, summary fact pages, further reading suggestions, and recommended Internet sites. There is close correlation between the dialogue and depicted actions and illustrations, which will provide visual reinforcement for struggling readers. These deceptively slim volumes convey a tremendous amount of information and vocabulary, and should attract attention from reluctant and enthusiastic readers alike. Bibliography. Glossary. Index. Recommended. --Library Media Connection; Vol. 25, No. 7; Pages 83-84, April 2007

This engaging graphic novel begins with an illustration of the spread of infectious disease--a nineteenth century farmer transmitting tuberculosis to the families that buy his milk. The author explains the prevailing theory of sickness at the time--evil spirits. Then, we are introduced to Pasteur, a scientist who is working to understand food spoilage. While readers may be familiar with pasteurization as it applies to milk, Fandel shows that Pasteur did not start with dairy. Fandel shows Pasteur s work that led to disproving the theory of spontaneous generation and the development of pasteurization to help winemakers. The scientific method and process is illustrated well throughout the book. At the end of the book Fandel includes more facts about Pasteur. There is also a glossary with a pronunciation guide for all included words, information about the FactHound Internet search site, related books, and a bibliography. The illustrations work well with the text to enhance the reading experience. A good supplement to a history or science unit, it is part of the Inventions and Discovery series. --Childrens Literature Comprehensive Database, January 2007
