Excellent submitted by sueij on June 19, 2013, 3:36pm Ottaviani has a knack for making science accessible, and does it yet again in Primates. I had no idea that Goodall, Fossey, and Galdikas's stories were so linked (nor that there was a reason that what we know about primates from early field work was all done by women!). Both the excitement and the challenges of the work are touched on in ways that could open great discussion in a classroom or be the beginning of a student research paper.

Though it might be a little bit of a stretch for my reading-advanced nine-year-old, I will be inviting him to read it this summer, and as an adult I enjoyed it thoroughly.

interesting submitted by ECReader on June 21, 2013, 10:58am This book is full of interesting stories on three very fascinating women.

Nicely done submitted by yugure on August 1, 2013, 10:54am A well-crafted, easy introduction for children to the lives of these three remarkable women. Not as detailed as an autobiography or even biography, of course, but hopefully young readers will have their interest piqued so they'll seek out more information. Loved the adorable, colorful artwork.

Ooh, Ah, Ooh submitted by Pumpkinscones on August 3, 2013, 10:51am If you enjoy this book, be sure to check out Ottiavani's book about the dinosaur wars, Bone Sharps. I really enjoy his works in this vein - pulling together threads of lives, finding similarities and twisting them together to make a narrative (while freely admitting that not everything in the story is factual). One thing it does lack, compared to Bone Sharps, is the factoid postscript pointing out where the deliberate distortions have been made.

That aside it's a great read and simply, but nicely drawn

women scientists, graphic biographies submitted by camelsamba on June 24, 2014, 8:43pm Interesting how the prose is different for Jane Goodall and Dian Fossey. The 'talk' (narration?) in the Fossey section is much more abrupt, terse, clipped. Does this reflect a difference in personalities?

Fun and informative submitted by ecronin on August 3, 2016, 8:40am This is a fun book to read, but is is also really informative.

One of the better graphic novels I've read submitted by sfrantom on July 22, 2018, 4:38pm I'm not normally drawn to this genre, but love the stories of these three amazing women, so thought I'd check this out and I am so glad that I did! While the author owns up to some fictionalizing for the sake of the story, there are many resources shared at the end that help one to find more in-depth information about each woman and the lasting legacy on primatology. Very entertaining and well done!
