Jen Bryant and Melissa Sweet team up once again to share this inspiring story of a self-taught painter from humble beginnings who despite many obstacles, was ultimately able to do what he loved, and be recognized for who he was: an artist.
MELISSA SWEET is the Caldecott Honor artist of A River of Words by Jen Bryant, The Sleepy Little Alphabet by Judy Sierra, and Mrs. Harkness and the Panda by Alicia Potter, among others. She is also the author-illustrator of Balloons Over Broadway, which was awarded a Robert F. Sibert Medal.
"Quotations from Pippin about the psychological scars of war and his artistic process are hand-drawn into Sweet's images, underscoring how art was not only a joyful outlet for Pippin, but also a vital means of interpreting the world."
Starred Review, School Library Journal, January 1, 2013:
"Bryants meticulously researched, eloquent text makes this a winning read-aloud, while Sweets vibrant, folksy illustrations, rendered in watercolor, gouache, and mixed media, portray the joys and hardships of the mans life, using his trademark palette…with just a splash of red."
Starred Review, Kirkus Reviews, December 1, 2012:
"This outstanding portrait of African-American artist Horace Pippin (1888-1946) allows Pippins work to shineand his heart too."
Starred Review, Booklist, November 1, 2012:
"…a well-structured narrative with recurring themes and a highly accessible style…outstanding."
