THREE STARRED REVIEWS…!
* “By dramatizing Picasso’s development rather than merely recounting it, Winter keeps readers fascinated, and by making Picasso a superhero – he bursts right through the canvas of a serene landscape on the second page – he dispels any notion of art as tired or irrelevant.” (Publishers Weekly, starred review) Read the review.>
* “Using an innovative and offbeat approach, Winter provides glimpses of the energy, enthusiasm and dedication that ruled the artist’s world.” (School Library Journal, starred review)
* “In words and visuals, the powerhouse team of Winter and Hawkes capture the ever-changing creativity that was Picasso’s hallmark by mirroring it in the book’s ebullient, often disconcerting design…. A combustible experience.” (Booklist, starred review)
“An energetic and affectionate introduction to an artist who was always somewhat larger than life.” (Kirkus Reviews) Read the review.>
