Synopsis

Meet the Artist: Pablo Picasso by Patricia Geis

Pablo Picasso: Meet the Artist! takes young readers on an interactive journey through the remarkable life of the legendary Spanish painter. This engaging book uses a multitude of lift-the-flaps, cut-outs and pull tabs to explain how his art evolved over his lifetime-from his earliest painting at age seven to the great masterworks of Les Demoiselles d'Avignon and Guernica. Readers are encouraged to make their own cubist collage using an enclosed sheet containing an eclectic collection of images.

Reviews

Vibrantly colored and interactive, with cutouts, pop-ups, sliding tabs and opportunities to explore and mimic some of the methods the artist employed.... Picasso is an artist whose work immediately appeals to children, and the author makes the most of her subject.... The act of flipping the pages introduces an element of drama, surprise and fun to viewing the works. - NYTimes.com We can't think of a better gift for that budding seven-year-old visual talent. - Lonny

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