Publisher Description:

Barron's introduces another fine title to the highly-acclaimed Anholt's Artists Books for Children series. Here, award-winning author and illustrator Laurence Anholt reviews the life of Marc Chagall. Through the stories that he tells his beloved twin grandchildren, Chagall relates his extraordinary rags to riches journey from a topsy-turvy cottage life in Russia, through the dark years of the war, emerging in the sparkling sunlight of Southern France. Anholt's fine illustrations appear on every page and include reproductions of Chagall's work. Once again, Laurence Anholt inspires and informs in this much-loved series, which has sold more than one million copies around the world. (Ages 48)
Category Description for Anholt's Artists Series:

These slim historical fiction books offer a glimpse into the lives of famous artists and real children who knew them. The story is told from the perspective of the child. In Degas and the Little Dancer, Marie is a ballet student from a very poor family. She dreams of being the most famous dancer in the world, but her father becomes ill and they no longer have enough money to pay for Marie's lessons. Degas, an ill-tempered artist who comes to the studio to draw the dancers, just might be able to help Marie. The books are fully illustrated, featuring beautiful illustrations to accompany the stories. Each one also includes a few reproductions of the artist's work as well as an informational page about the artist at the end of the book. Slightly oversized, approx. 32 pgs, pb. - Melissa
