Product Description

Henri Rousseau wanted to be an artist, but he had no formal training. Instead, he taught himself to paint; he painted until the jungles and animals and distant lands in his head came alive on the space of his canvases. Introduce your young readers to the beloved painter and encourage them to learn the important lesson to persevere despite the odds.
Winner of the 2013 PEN/Steven Kroll Award for Picture Book Writing.

Publisher's Description

Henri Rousseau wanted to be an artist. But he had no formal training. Instead, he taught himself to paint. He painted until the jungles and animals and distant lands in his head came alive on the space of his canvases.

Henri Rousseau endured the harsh critics of his day and created the brilliant paintings that now hang in museums around the world. Michelle Markel's vivid text, complemented by the vibrant illustrations of Amanda Hall, artfully introduces young readers to the beloved painter and encourages all readers to persevere despite all odds.
