About this title:

Synopsis: A biography of the nineteenth-century Frenchman, accidentally blinded as a child, who created the dot system of reading and writing that is now used by the blind throughout the world.

From School Library Journal: Grade 3-5. O'Connor's briskly paced biography of the 19th-century inventor of the writing system used by the blind presents Braille's story with interesting details. His life as a child and as an adult is well presented. No fictional dialogue appears, although there are a few statements about what emotions Braille might have felt at various times. Quotes are provided, apparently from writings, but no source notes are given. A Braille alphabet is pictured in the back matter, but the dots are not raised, so readers do not get a full sense of the Braille method. The reproduction is so poor that the details are difficult to see. The black-and-white drawings are serviceable at best and very muddy looking at worst. It's unfortunate that the cover illustration is so unappealing. Rendered in black, brown, and cream tones with deep shading around his face, Braille is ghoulish in appearance. However, the information is readable, moving the book beyond the realm of "for reports only."?Jane Claes, T. J. Lee Elementary School, Irving, TX
