I'm a big fan of Mary Shelley and enjoyed reading this book. It does a fine job telling her life story in a simple, mostly age appropriate manner. AGE INAPPROPRIATE ALERT: Mary Shelley eloped with an already married older poet. For the 4-8 YO crowd, it would've been fine to NOT mention that the man she married was already married. I'm all for truth but let's please keep it age-appropriate.

The illustrations are overly plain. I was hoping for the inside illustrations to be a bit more interesting. Pictures tell a part of the story and the picture part isn't well told.

At the end of story, it states that Mary Shelley is "the mother of science fiction". This is not even close to being true. Frankenstein was a fine story, but no where near the first science fiction story ever written or even written by a woman. The genre is not as new as some apparently believe. Other famous early works is that sci fi include Margaret Cavendish’s 'The Blazing World" (1666) and Marie-Anne de Roumier-Robert's "Lord Seton's Voyage Among the Seven Planets" (1765). If you look through history, there are many more science fiction stories, as people have been looking ahead and writing about their visions of the future and how they believe technology and science may be used for hundreds of years if not longer.

Reviewed in the United States on 20 February 2020
This series of children's biographies is okay, but the I Am ..... Series by Brad Meltzer is much, much better. This series features a good variety of historical figures (primarily lesser known female and minority figures) which is great, but it only gives a very basic overview of their lives without any real detail or explanation of obstacles or difficulties that they may have overcome. This book mentions and glosses over the fact that Mary Shelley married a married man and that women weren't supposed to write horror novels. It doesn't really cover what she did in any in depth way either "she wrote books" doesn't explain what made her special. Even the more "in depth" pages in the back of the book read like a basic encyclopedia entry. The illustrations are colorful though their style isn't to my taste. The short story will hold a kids attention, but the best case scenario is that these books pique a kids interest enough to read a more in depth biography of whoever they were introduced to because they certainly haven't learned much beyond "Mary Shelley wrote Frankenstein and it was popular" from this book.
