About the Book

Kid Artists: True Tales of Childhood from Creative Legends

Written by David Stabler with illustrations by Doogie Horner

The series that began with KID PRESIDENTS and KID ATHLETES has a new volume that chronicles the childhoods of 16 celebrated artists --- everyone from Claude Monet and Vincent van Gogh to Mary Cassat, Frida Kahlo, Jean-Michel Basquiat and even Dr. Seuss! Readers will learn: 

· Georgia O’Keeffe was so enthralled by nature that she once ate dirt just to see what it tasted like. 
· Jackson Pollock lost the top of his right index finger in a childhood accident (and the severed tip was eaten by a rooster!). 
· Andy Warhol’s favorite childhood lunch was --- what else? --- a bowl of Campbell’s tomato soup.

Every scribble, sketch and sticky situation comes to life in these kid-friendly and relatable stories, all with Doogie Horner’s trademark full-color illustrations. KID ARTISTS is a delight for budding artists and eager readers alike.
