Published on 10/06/2022

“Kirkus Reviews is full of praise for the incredible new book ‘Rosalind Looked Closer’: An Unsung Hero of Molecular Science’, written by Lisa Gerin and illustrated by Astounding Artist, Chiara Fedele! It is a brilliant introduction to the life of the incredible scientist, Rosalind Franklin and how her research in molecular biology changed the world!

“Fedele’s mostly earth-toned illustrations are carefully constructed to capture the times and settings and present Rosalind as strong and serious.” – Kirkus Reviews
