Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kathleen Karr
Although his life was not particularly exotic, Klee's colorful, vibrant, almost child-like work makes him an artist who should be especially accessible to children. Unfortunately, Connolly's study chooses to focus strongly on the black-and-white period and its works--at least one of which is badly printed. The color reproductions are excellent, but one wonders why more of these weren't used in place of biographical illustrations commissioned for the book which add little to the whole. This is part of a recent series, "Life and Work of" which takes on famous artists for beginning readers. Large type, bolded vocabulary, and back matter which includes a glossary, timeline, index, and bibliography are included.

    Sean Connoly: His life as Klee

    It is as though Sean Connoly became Paul Klee while writing this book. The way Klee is discribed is amazing. The snipits of art are colorful, and the captions telling information about the art and artist are amazing and discriptive. This book is a great source of information for reports are projects, and if you are, like me, a person who is in love with art this book is very enjoyable. If you are anything like me, you will surely be pleased with this book.
