Children's Literature
As a child, Marcel Marceau enjoys dressing up and performing. A fan of silent movies, he remembers the magic of silence into adulthood. When World War I begins, he and his family must leave their Strasbourg home. Marcel studies art in Limoges, France. As the Nazis take over France and round up Jews, Marcel joins the Resistance and forges identity cards to save children. He also leads groups of children to safety in Switzerland. He continues to perform at a Children's Home. Spotted there, he is sent to study at a drama school, where he learns the almost forgotten art of mime. After the war, as the character Bip, he successfully revives the art of mime. Gautier's sketchy, mixed media illustrations exude innocence. The double-page scenes focus on the characters, and the background is illustrated sparingly. Two final pages show photographs of Bip in action and include explanatory notes that extend the story.
