"Sumptuously illustrated...charming and informative." --The Wall Street Journal "An inviting, playful introduction to an influential painter." --Booklist "Readers will find this portrait of an artist distinctive, useful, and appealing." --Kirkus Reviews "This is a great picture book that demonstrates the value of determination, creativity, and self-worth. Children in kindergarten to second grade will enjoy the storyline and the harmonious and colorful illustrations." --School Library Connection "By examining the hard work and frustration that often lies behind what can look like inevitable celebrity, Guglielmo makes a solid case for understanding Cézanne as a painter who followed his own vision." --Publishers Weekly
