I love the cover of this entry in the Little People, Big Dreams series. It drew (pun not fully intended) me right in to the story of the well-known artist whose works I very much like. I think that kids will also enjoy learning more about this original man.
David’s path to becoming an artist included one fun fact that kids will enjoy; it has to do with his taking tests at school. Hockney’s sexual orientation is noted in a simple and declarative way. Readers go on to watch as he attends art school in England and later moves to the U.S. where he was always trying new things.
This book offers a good introduction to Hockney. It is another welcome entry in this excellent series.
Many thanks to NetGalley and Quarto Publishing Group for this title. All opinions are my own.
