The Lovereading4Kids comment

With illustrations by Italian artist Beatrice Alemagna and written by Nancy Lim, this delightful book brings Picasso's villa in Cannes to life and reveals little known aspects of Picasso's artistic practice. Ever-inventive and playful, Picasso made assemblage sculptures throughout his long career, many of them of animals, which he kept in his private collection and treated as members of his household. Readers will learn about the remarkable assortment of materials he used, and the joy and freedom sculpture brought to Picassos life and art practice.


Picasso & Lump by Nancy Lim, Beatrice Alemagna

Picasso's dog Lump loves cake. He can never have enough! But when he takes a bite out of a beautiful cake he finds in the garden, he discovers its not cake at all its made of metal and realizes not everything is what it seems. While on the hunt for more cake, Lump and his friend, the goat Esmeralda, meet other animals in the garden and learn that they are made from surprising things. She-Goat tells the story of how Picasso made her from pieces of rubbish like broken lamps and tin cans, Baboon explains that his head is made up of toy cars and metal strips, and Crane shows off her delicate legs made from forks.
