Determined Dreamer: The Story of Marie Curie

Hopkinson, Deborah/ Hill, Jenn

This is a comprehensive and accessible picture book biography of Marie Curie, the groundbreaking scientist and two-time Nobel Prize winner, from an acclaimed author and illustrator duo.

Before Marie Curie was the first woman in France to earn the highest degree in physics, before she discovered two new radioactive elements, and became the first woman to win a Nobel Prize (and then the first person to win two!) – she was a little girl named Marie Sklodowska who dreamed of being a scientist – and was determined to make that dream come true.

This is an accessible and compelling homage to Marie Curie, whose life and legacy continue to inspire to this very day.
