About this item

Marcel Marceau, the world's most famous mime, enthralled audiences around the world for more than fifty years. When he waved his hand or lifted his eyebrow he was able to speak volumes without ever saying a word. But few know the story of the man behind those gestures . . .  Distinguished author Leda Schubert and award-winning artist Gerard DuBois bring their own artistry to this gorgeously written and illustrated picture book biography. Monsieur Marceau is a Kirkus Reviews Best Children's Book of 2012

About the Author

Leda Schubert

I write books for children and read books for all ages. Lots of books. Too many books. I live in North Central Vermont with my husband and two large dogs: Bunky (a challenge) and Pippa (a saint) . I have an MFA in Writing for Children/Young Adults from VCFA and have taught in the very same program. I play guitar (fingerpicking country blues) , sing badly, and attempt to paint with watercolor. I do not like to cook and have failed at growing things.
