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

.. .impressively diverse... --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 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 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

As an upper elementary school teacher, it's hard to find interesting and well-written non-fiction texts for kids ages 8-12.... That's why I get SO very excited when I discover a non fiction book that is not only interesting and well-written, but perfect for this age group. Kid Artists: True Tales of Childhood From Creative Legends is one of these books. --The Caterpillar CornerPraise for Kid Presidents:
