Expedition in the mountains of southern France They uickly become fast friends and the artist takes great pleasure in painting a portrait of his apple cheeked son Most of his paintings however are landscapes of the mountain country where they are camping although the people who live nearby often laugh at the artist's pictures which they think are poor But youn. An enjoyable way to learn about Paul Cezanne told as a story that children can relate to Laurence Anholt's illustrations are delightful and I would be interested to find additional books in his series celebrating great artists For grown ups the author's note on the inside back cover provides a brief bio of Cezanne

CHARACTERS Cézanne and the Apple Boy

Cézanne and the Apple BoyG Paul admires his father's work and he is not alone A picture dealer from Paris happens to be in the region and when he sees Cézanne's paintings he thinks they are wonderful Before long Cézanne becomes famous and wealthy The story enhanced with Laurence Anholt's illustrations on every page include several that are reproductions of Cézanne's famous painting. While not a typical biographical read this is a fun work of historical fiction that is perfect for young children learning about Cezanne and his struggles to create something entirely new with art I can imagine students excitedly pointing out the backgrounds that are inspired from Cezanne's work

I like this series that gives a brief window into the lives of famous artists They are cute and fun and a great way to introduce artists to kids Also important to me are the inclusion of actual pieces by the artist not just the illustrator's rendition of the pieces although those pop up from time to time as well and an author's note where information is available I do wish there was a suggested reading section that gave some direction on where to find info on Cezanne
