Mr. Opposition - Marie Curie's Arch Nemesis

Like any good comic book story, a villain always pops up at the worst time in the story to cause trouble for the superhero. In Marie Curie and the Power of Persistence (now available for pre-order on IndieGoGo), the villain she must overcome is called Mr. Opposition (who changes his name to Monsieur O when she moves to France).

Mr. Opposition isn't represented as a person in the book because the opposition is slinkier, sneakier, and predictably unhelpful. Mr. Opposition represents Marie's personal self-doubt and the institutional obstacles around her that she must overcome to reach professional success.

Within the pages of the book, Mr. Opposition is sometimes hidden within the illustrations, which will have young readers eagerly searching for his shape. In some situations, Marie confronts him head on and in others, he creeps along and follows her wherever she goes.

Marie Curie represents a strong-willed role model for both girls and boys as the first person to ever win two Nobel Prizes and the only person to win Nobel Prizes in two different sciences. This book demystifies her complex discoveries using language that early readers can understand, and parents and teachers alike will find it a joy to read aloud.

Kids love epic adventures complete with heroes, villains, and incredible superpowers and this book deliver all of that with dynamic and infectious energy. With imaginative illustrations and easy to read pages, kids will love to read this book.

Marie Curie and the Power of Persistence sounds like a great book for my nephew who is 8 and my niece who is 6. I think they would really love this book because of they are both scientific thinkers. Thanks for sharing this awesome read for the kids.

What a great book! As a teacher, it's been my experience that the more fun you can make a subject, the more interested the children are in learning it. This book is a great way to get them interested in science!

This looks like a great book for my 5 year old granddaughter who's favorite place to go is the Orlando Science Center. She's always creating things & sometimes I call her my little engineer.

I love how great this book sounds, the perfect way to get young ones into Science. IndieGogo is an awesome way to crowdfund things as well, I am amazed at some of the things that have come from people using it.
