    Author Leda Schubert and illustrator Gerard DuBois present the life story of celebrated mime Marcel Marceau in this informative and engaging picture-book biography, managing to capture some of the pathos of his early life, as well as the magic of his craft through the simple but expressive text and evocative artwork.

Born in 1923 as Marcel Mangel, Marceau was a young man when the Nazis occupied France, joining the resistance and becoming involved in many daring activities, from leading groups of Jewish schoolchildren across the border to safety in Switzerland to hiding American parachutists who had landed behind enemy lines. His father, who like many of France's Jews did not survive the war, was killed in a concentration camp. After the war, Mangel took the name Marceau and began to study the art of mime, creating the now famous character of Bip, a tragic-comic character with sad eyes and a penchant for amusing adventures. This character, and Marceau's work as a performer, would eventually become world-famous, entertaining thousands of audiences during the course of his long career. As someone who knew very little of mime in general or Marcel Marceau in particular - I had been familiar with the name, of course, and recognized the face of "Bip," when I saw him, but that was the extent of my familiarity with the subject - I went in to Monsieur Marceau with no set expectations. I came away immensely impressed, both with the subject of the book, and with its creators. I was particularly struck by the connections Marceau himself drew between his choice of profession, which involved silent communication, and his identity as a Jew, and the son of a victim of the Nazi Final Solution: "The people who came back from the camps were never able to talk about it," Marceau once said, "My name is Mangel. I am Jewish. Perhaps that, unconsciously, contributed towards my choice of silence." Obviously, there is so much more to Marceau than Bip, his "public face," and this excellent book communicates that wonderfully. I appreciated the fact that Schubert was able to communicate so much, factually and emotionally, without drowning her narrative with information. The artwork by Gerard DuBois brilliantly captures the emotion in Schubert's text, skillfully depicting the mixture of sadness and joy that seems to have characterized Marceau's life and art. All in all, this is a wonderful biography for younger readers, one that manages to be both informative and moving - an afterword gives more details about Marceau - and a beautiful book, artistically speaking. Recommended to children who enjoy biography, or who are interested in mime, theater, and/or Marcel Marceau.

    Marcel Marceau was an adored mime who lived from 1923 to 2007. He was born in France and grew up loving to entertain his friends by imitating Charlie Chaplain. When he was 16, WWII began and Marcel, a Jew, joined the French underground to resist the Nazis. He helped many Jewish children to safety and helped to hide American parachutists. After the war he created the character 'Bip' and quickly became famous.

Author Leda Schubert and illustrator Gerard Dubois do a great job capturing Marcel Marceau's whimsical performances as well as his history of being a political activist during World War II. Marcel would be an interesting person for students to research and learn about when studying WWII. He is inspirational because although he was faced with many tragedies during the war (including the death of his father in a concentration camp) he was able to create something beautiful. He was able to do something that required no language during a time when those who were from different countries and who spoke different languages felt very divided. I would recommend using this book with 2nd - 4th graders.

    What an engaging biography of Monsieur Marceau? I never kew he was a Jew. WW II and Holocaust are shared in the journey of his life. I appreciate WW II and Holocaust are not focused as the center of the story but rather steps that shape Monsieur Marceau's identity as an actor who has a deep life and professional philosophy and belief. I appreciate controled text amounts while the powerful illustration offers "less is more" strength throughout the story.

    Several people recommended this to me at NCTE in Boston when looking through sale books, so of course I bought it! I knew of Monsieur Marceau, but I didn't know about his role in the Holocaust, joining the French underground and saving hundreds of Jewish children by leading them out of occupied France, over the Alps, and into Switzerland. Sparse writing but beautiful illustrations will introduce children to a fascinating man.

    Marcel Marceau is such an icon and now there's a wonderful picture book to give us his history. Just like Me...Jane, it's a great way to introduce finding your passion as a child and achieving your dreams, despite the obstacles that might arise. This book also offers a tiny peek into the French Resistance aspect of WWiI.

    I did not realize what a complex and interesting life Marcel Marceau led until I read this book, now I want to find out more. Favorite quote "Do not meddle in the affairs of wizards, for you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup"- Marcel Marceau

    Interesting short biography. Apparently, Marceau is quoted as saying, "Never get a mime talking, he won't stop" which I found ironically humorous.

    This is the story of Monsieur Marceau, a famous French mime, who began miming after World War II. The story begins with his childhood. It describes Monsieur Marceau's family of performers, where he lived, and his hope of being the Charlie Chaplin of theater. When he was a boy, he used to mime for his friends for comedic purposes. At the age of sixteen, when the war began, the story described how his family moved, how Marceau joined a resistance group against the Nazis, how he used to lead Jewish This is the story of Monsieur Marceau, a famous French mime, who began miming after World War II. The story begins with his childhood. It describes Monsieur Marceau's family of performers, where he lived, and his hope of being the Charlie Chaplin of theater. When he was a boy, he used to mime for his friends for comedic purposes. At the age of sixteen, when the war began, the story described how his family moved, how Marceau joined a resistance group against the Nazis, how he used to lead Jewish children to safety, and how he helped hide some Americans. After his father died in the concentration camps and the war was over, Monsieur Marceau was quoted as describing how maybe his dream of miming spurs from how Jewish people often find it difficult to speak about the camps. His point was that if they don't want to talk, then maybe it's a Jewish thing (as he was Jewish but had changed his last name during the war). So he started studying mime. Bip was the name of the character he created, using a stovepipe hat, a red carnation, and lots of make-up. This was a very famous role for him and he won a great deal of awards and prizes, although, Monsieur Marceau did often speak off stage, and I mean he was a talker. He became a world traveller, performing in different countries, and that's the end. So, what do I have to say about the book? I was interested in reading the book because I found the idea of a book about a mime so compelling and unique, that I couldn't pass it up, so the book covered a very interesting, unique topic. I also think it is important to include information about the character's childhood in these types of biography books, and I really enjoyed hearing about his heroic acts, how he was able to save so many people during the war. However, I do have to say, I wondered why Monsieur Marceau was chosen out of a list of mimes. Okay, I'll be the first to admit I know nothing about famous mimes. I didn't even know about Monsieur Marceau or his most famous teacher, but I'm sure there were other mimes, and I wondered why this one in particular stood out so much. Did he win a prize that was created only for him? Did he mark the pathway for mimes to come, and if so, how? Was he the first world-traveling mime? I think it is truly fantastic that he obviously had a great heart, as described by his saving other Jewish people, but career-wise, what did he do that stood out from others like him, or maybe there are no others like him. In that case, how? How is he so incredible? I think that was the only place the author fell short. Other than that, if the audience clearly saw how Monsieur Marceau was so important to the world of mime, this book would be a top-rated book, at least in my opinion. To recap, a unique, interesting topic, childhood and background information, and heroic acts make this book a must-read, however I thought the book fell short with making Monsieur Marceau stand out amongst his peers.

This picture book introduces the reader to the life of Marcel Marceau starting with his love of silent movies as a young boy. He was born into an artistic family with dancers and musicians. He began miming when he was young to entertain his friends. He had to leave France when World War II started. Marcel changed his name from Mangel to Marceau to hide the fact that6 he was Jewish. He created a character named Bip and wore white makeup. He never spoke during his act, he would use his body to tell a story. The best parts of this book are the beautiful pictures that show Marcel on stage performing. His nimble body and control over his expressions and movements are truly captured in the illustrations. The book touches on his religion and the fact that it was a difficult time in history to be Jewish. The book also mentions how much audiences from many countries were touched by the universal language of mime that Monsieur Marceau shared with his audience.

    I really enjoyed reading Monsieur Marceau: Actor Without Words mostly because I knew everything that I was reading actually happened. I took 4 years of French in highschool, so I was also able to enjoy seeing some french names and learning more about the history of France. I especially liked that Schubert decided to include a real photo of Monsieur Marceau along with some additional information about his life for readers to learn more about him if they so desired.

In some nonfiction biographies, the information is presented in a very dull and boring way, but because of DuBois’s pictures, the story really came to life as readers were able to see a little cartoon Marceau miming out a variety of different things! From the perspective of a teacher, I think that this would be a great book to read aloud as a supplemental tool before or after a history lesson about World War 2 and the impact it had on local citizens.

I learned a lot more about mimes, and it was interesting to make the connection of when and where miming was popular. Monsieur Marceau represents a story of an artist using pain( in his case, the loss of his father), to bring joy to others. I would definitely read again, and completely understand why it won the Orbis Pictus Award in 2013.

    I teach Theatre classes and we have a unit on pantomime. I show videos about Marcel Marceau, so I was super curious to read this book. I didn't know much about his background other than information pertaining to miming. It was interesting to learn about his involvement in the French underground during World War II. It made me think of the book The Nightingale. I really liked the illustrations and how the color was minimal in order to really portray the acting (movement and facial expressions) of I teach Theatre classes and we have a unit on pantomime.

    "Monsieur Marceau: Actor Without Words" had amazing illustrations and text describing the life of Marcel Marceau. The illustrations throughout the book are able to show the reader and viewers the emotions that are laid across Marceau's face. This being sad or happy, the white painted face filled with emotions takes us into the even as if we were their viewing the mime perform. Children will love the tell of Monsieur Marceau and his character Bib throughout the story.

    I had little to no interest in the subject of this book, but ran across it while preparing for an upcoming program relating to France. I was pleasantly surprised to find it quite interesting and good. It made me want to learn and see more about Marcel Marceau, and I consider that something of an accomplishment for a book read by someone (me!) who usually goes out of the way to avoid mimes.

He was born in France into a family of dancers and musicians. Growing up he admired the work of Charlie Chaplin, the famous star of silent movies. During World War II, Marceau and his family were forced to move and, later, when he joined the French underground in an effort to resist the Nazis he helped hundreds of Jewish children escape from an orphanage in France to safety in Switzerland. He also changed his last name from Mangel to Marceau so that people would not know he was Jewish. His father died in a concentration camp and he was never able to talk about it. He later said, “perhaps that, unconsciously, contributed towards my choice of silence” (p. 18). After the war, he studied mime and when he was twenty one he created “Bip,” the famous character that would be part of him the rest of his life. Marceau became a world famous mime pretending to walk against the wind, being a fish, or chasing butterflies without a net. He traveled the world, appearing on television and on stage, performing for presidents and princesses, kings and queens, and everyone else. Marceau died in 2007 and was buried in a cemetery in Paris, France. A suggestion for a “twin text” might be Harvey the Child Mime (2011), by Loryn Brantz, which is a story about the power of imagination, mime, and what makes a contented heart. Harvey is a child mime from a family of mimes who enjoys performing amazing mime tricks for his audience down on the docks each day. One day, when Harvey performs his signature box act for the crowds, his invisible box is mistaken for a real box and is loaded onto a cargo ship by two dock workers and taken to an unknown destination and a magical adventure unfolds. Harvey is taken to the pink island which is home to a spoiled princess who does not appreciate any of her birthday presents (one of which is Harvey). When he discovers (from her screaming) that she wanted a pony instead of a boy, he quickly pretends to be riding an imaginary horse. More confusion follows, but eventually the princess discovers, through Harvey's mime, that even she has the power to imagine an invisible horse. He also teaches her to use her own imagination and depend on herself, not on the hired help and, as a result, the princess stops having tantrums and making demands. While on his adventure, Harvey encounters new friends, teaches life lessons, rides a purple elephant across a tight rope, and, at one point, even becomes a jelly fish. The story ends when Harvey is returned to the ship, then to his home with his parents, and finally back to his room. Harvey takes the reader/listener through a miming adventure and, at the same time, exposes the book's main message–happiness doesn't come in a box, it's created within. Both picture books are appropriate for grades K-3 and, although one is based on fact and one is fiction, each tells the story of a mime who comes from a family of performers, was well received by audiences, traveled to distant locations, and positively impacted the lives of those he came in contact with. After reading these books, it might be fun to have students mime. At the end of Monsieur Marceau: Actor Without Words, Bob Mermin, who studied extensively with Marcel Marceau, provides some advice for getting started (read the book!).

    This book is about the story of Marcel Marceau one of the world’s most famous mimes. He was born in France 1923. At the age 16 when WWII began, as a Jew, he joined the French underground to resist the Nazis. After all the hardship of war, he changed his name and started a successful career as a mime. From a young age Marceau loved to entertain his friends by imitating Charlie Chaplin. Marceau was able to perform to and inspire audiences of all languages because he only used gestures. Even though This book is about the story of Marcel Marceau one of the world’s most famous mimes. He was born in France 1923. At the age 16 when WWII began, as a Jew, he joined the French underground to resist the Nazis. After all the hardship of war, he changed his name and started a successful career as a mime. From a young age Marceau loved to entertain his friends by imitating Charlie Chaplin. Marceau was able to perform to and inspire audiences of all languages because he only used gestures. Even though Marceau lived through many life tragedies, he was able to overcome them and provide the community with entertaining shows in a sad era of history. This is an overall well-rounded book with multiple strengths. First off, this book provides the readers with background information on the issues that happened during the WWII. It gives readers insight into the injustices that were occurring to the Jews during this time such as families being ripped away from their homes and the awful concentration camps. The illustrations are also a huge strength. The illustrations are able to connect the reader to Marceau because each illustration gives off the emotion Marceau tries to portray in each of his presentations as a mine. Also each event or achievement in Marceau life is backed up with an illustration that sets the mood by playing with the colors; dark colors for tragedies and whimsical colors for positive events in his life. This book is great for students to learn about a new interesting character of miming history, as well as to learn about an important era of our history. Granting not many, this book may have some potential weakness. One thing that may be considered a weakness is the fact that this book may not be appropriate for all ages. Although not presented in an inappropriate manner, the book does discuss some semi-mature content like WWII, Nazis, concentration camps, and related topics. Such topics may be hard for young readers to understand and appreciate. Also, because the life of Marcel Marceau was highly impacted by the WWII, prior background knowledge to the events that led to the WWII may be needed in order for readers to fully understand the importance of these events of Marceau. This may be considered a weakness as well, because not all students who pick up this book may be able to fully comprehend the book without any prior knowledge of history regarding the WWII. Since this book is appropriate for older students, this book may be great for introducing the class to the Holocaust and WWII. Students can use this book as introduction then further research and the French Resistance. The student can then write a report about what they have learned from the book and their research. This activity would be perfect for ages fourth grade and up.
