Horn Book Guide Reviews 2017 Spring

First introduced to Penrose's unique childhood in The Boy Who Bit Picasso, readers now learn about his experiences with Spanish surrealist artist Joan Mirs, a family friend. Varied type fonts and children's art inspired by Mirs creatively emphasize the childlike exuberance of Mirs's animal paintings. Guiding questions about his art ("Can you see any animal shapes in these sculptures?") and photographs of Mirs are included. Copyright 2017 Horn Book Guide Reviews.
