Synopsis

Meet the Circus by Edward Cheverton

Published to coincide with a major retrospective of Alexander Calder's work, Meet Alexander Calder is a fun-filled introduction to the work of one of the twentieth century's most important modern artists. Edward Cheverton takes readers beyond the page and introduces them to ways of creating art that takes up space and moves round and about. Taking inspiration from Alexander Calder's toys and mobiles, Cheverton invites readers to reinvent simple forms and experiment with combinations of found objects to create their own new pieces of sculpture. Children will enjoy discovering that art is not only something to observe but something to play and interact with, and to have fun making.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

It is fantastic, you get to read lots of books and you always find something new and amazing in them.

I love all the books they recommend & put up for me to review. I also love the fact that they give new authors the chance to share their boo

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.
