Synopsis

Meet the Artist: Alexander Calder by Patricia Geis

No artist can put a smile on your face quicker than Alexander Calder. A sense of playfulness animates all of his work-from his signature hanging mobiles to his endlessly creative toys, drawings, and jewellery. Alexander Calder: Meet the Artist is an exciting hands-on introduction to this American sculptor. Calder's whimsical world is brought to life by imaginative pop-ups, pull tabs, lift-the-flaps, and cut-outs. A universe of artistic possibilities opens up as young readers explore Calder's creative evolution, play with his toy designs, and even create their own sculptural circus.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
