Synopsis

Kid Artists by David Stabler, Doogie Horner

The series that began with Kid Presidents and Kid Athletes has a new volume that chronicles the childhoods of 16 celebrated artists-everyone from Claude Monet and Vincent van Gogh to Mary Cassat, Frida Kahlo, Jean-Michel Basquiat, and even Dr. Seuss! Readers will learn: Georgia O'Keeffe was so enthralled by nature that she once ate dirt just to see what it tasted like.* Jackson Pollock lost the top of his right index finger in a childhood accident (and the severed tip was eaten by a rooster!).* Andy Warhol's favourite childhood lunch was-what else?-a bowl of Campbell's tomato soup. Every scribble, sketch, and sticky situation comes to life in these kid-friendly and relatable stories, all with Doogie Horner's trademark whimsical illustrations. Kid Artists is a delight for budding artists and eager readers alike.

Reviews

Large type and funny color illustrations make this and other books in this series a hit with kids. Baltimore Sun an interesting, attention-holding collection of mini-biographies that any 7-to-14-year-old can enjoy for fun or for a school project. Cape Cod Times [Kid Artists] teach[es] us lessons about the artists and their life, but more so how they wererealpeople who struggled with their own challenges. I love that these books show us strong example of perseverance, endurance, aspiration and what being passionate looks like. This series is absolutely amazing, I would highly recommendKid Artists. . .a fantastic book for art teachers to share with their students as well as for parents to share with their children. The Petite Stag Kid Artistsis a quick, fun read that will show readers great artists started out just as kids and that working hard for what you want can really pay off. Pages Unbound Reviews Memorably weird childhood moments Jackson Pollock accidentally had part of a finger chopped off and then eaten by a rooster are likely to stick with readers, as will Horner s impish cartoons. -Publishers Weekly ...impressivelydiverse... -Booklist For budding artists, here s a heartening reminder that 17 unconventional greats not to mention all the rest started out as children too. Kirkus Reviews I adore a book that stimulates enough interest to convince you that you must learn more and I can easily visualize howKid Artistscould be used in a classroom for just that purpose.
