Charming text and illustrations depict the early life and work of Alexander Calder, whose whimsical moving wire circus gained attention in Paris and New York and led to his well known mobiles. This book is a great addition to any unit on art or sculpture.

Sandy always made things and though he was an engineer at first he went back to school to become an artist and created his own circus from metal. This is a bit of an autobiography of Alexander Calder and has made me want to see his art.

This book is fantastic! I am an art teacher and used it to introduce a unit on Calder. The kids got sucked in right away.

Used this book to introduce Calder as one of our monthly artists. The kids (3-5 years old) enjoyed listening to the story and after we did projects with pipe cleaners.
