Synopsis

Kid Artists by David Stabler

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.
