Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jessica Deutsch
In the company of Cezanne, da Vinci, Matisse, Michelangelo, Mor�, Monet, and Van Gogh (the other artists included in this series), Picasso is revealed for all his genius, intrigue and range in this beautifully arranged book. Young readers familiar with the Internet will relate immediately to the "web-page" style in which each period of Picasso's life is laid out. And there is much to be learned about history, mood, color, and career as the eye (and mind) is shifted from fine detail to the "big picture" of a legend's life. Carefully orchestrated activities will encourage hands-on exploration that will challenge and excite even adolescent artists in their own "blue periods."

i thought this book was pretty detailed and boring. I wouldn't recomend it to anyone else.
