Summary
, Victoria Chess, David Weisner, and other illustrators talk about what they do and how they got started. These first-person accounts have a remarkably strong common thread, yet are as varied and unique as the artists themselves. Full color.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Gr. 4-8. In the third volume of her Talking with Artists series, Cummings features Peter Catalanotto, Raul Colon, Lisa Desimini, Jane Dyer, Kevin Hawkes, G. Brian Karas, Betsy Lewin, Ted Lewin, Keiko Narahashi, Elise Primavera, Anna Rich, Peter Sis, and Paul O. Zelinsky. As in the previous books, each entry includes examples of the artist's works from childhood and adulthood and information gathered from questions about the illustrator's life story, normal day, family, and favorite materials for making art. Pictures of each artist as a child and an adult personalize the profiles. Appended are bibliographies of five books by each illustrator and several pages of tips--"secret techniques" --for budding young artists. Beautifully designed to draw readers, this book will inspire many children to make art and possibly even to choose it as a career some day. A fine addition to a beautiful and absorbing series.
