Reviews

β˜… "A relatively unknown entomologist comes out of oblivion in this engaging picture book biography. Harrington's text is inviting, and Turner's enthusiasm comes through clearly... Taylor's bright, cheerful, expertly rendered cartoon illustrations complement the text. Harrington and Taylor have rescued a worthy scientist from obscurity." -- School Library Journal, starred review

"A thorough biography of early African American scientist Charles Henry Turner... (the) extensively researched, jam-packed text intrigues and inspires with Turner's example of discovery and hard-won, meaningful contributions to knowledge about life. A well-written tribute to a deserving champion of science." -- Kirkus Reviews

"Full-color digital illustrations and Harrington's conversational, sometimes lyrical prose tell the story of 'indefatigable' African-American entomologist and zoologist Charles Henry Turner... fascinating..." -- Publishers Weekly
