If you are doing a project or report on him this book is great because it tells you all of his famous artwork (and all of his wives!!!) So read this book so worth the money!

This book has a ton of information in it. What I liked about it was that it talked about his wifes and the children. Most likely in books they would stay focused on the one character, but in this book they did talk about them. :)

Who was Pablo Picasso is the first book I have read in the series of Who Was...book. And, in truth, possibly the last. The series focuses on important figures in the arenas of art, science, government, and history. It has the main componets of a good nonfiction book: table of contents, easy to read bibliography, and a timeline of Pablo Picasso's life with a timeline of the world's events occurring simultaneoulsy with Picasso's life. However, it is the content and style that are lacking. The entire book is filled with statements that seem less facutal and more like opinons: "he had tons of energy," "everyone thought Picasso was an artistic genius- and they were right," and "Pablo was in shock. He may have also felt guilty about leaving his friend in such bad shape." These statements include inferences that should be left to the reader to make based on the facts. What the book lacks in direct quotes and primary sources, it made up in abundance with suppositions and generalizations. Furthering the unprofesional nature of the book were rudimentary pictoral renderings of Picasso, his friends and family, as well as his art. While I can appreciate trying to grab the attention of young readers, how much of what is essential to nonfiction has to be sacrificed?
