Smile: How Young Charlie Chaplin Taught the World to Laugh (and Cry)
It would have been nice to learn a bit more about who he was after his transformation into the Charlie Chaplin people still know today, but the afterword and “Facts About Charlie Chaplin” page helped shed more light on his persona. It is also nice that the author thought to include a “Resources” page at the end of the book to allow readers to learn more about Charlie Chaplin through books and movies that they see fit to review further. There was also a bit too much text for young readers, but the story still flowed pretty nicely.
For those curious to learn more about Chaplin's history, this biography of sorts does a nice job of sharing the beginnings of his life and career. The lyrical writing also makes for a smooth and engaging read.
