Winner of the Randolph Caldecott Medal and the Coretta Scott King Illustrator Award Jean-Michel Basquiat and his unique, collage-style paintings rocketed to fame in the 1980s as a cultural phenomenon unlike anything the art world had ever seen. But before that, he was a little boy who saw art everywhere: in poetry books and museums, in games and in the words that we speak, and in the pulsing energy of New York City. Now, award-winning illustrator Javaka Steptoe's vivid text and bold artwork echoing Basquiat's own introduce young readers to the powerful message that art doesn't always have to be neat or clean--and definitely not inside the lines--to be beautiful.Binding Type: HardcoverAuthor: Javaka SteptoePublisher: Little, Brown Books for Young ReadersPublished: 10/25/2016ISBN: 9780316213882Pages: 40Weight: 1.05lbsSize: 10.80h x 9.30w x 0.60dAward: Caldecott Medal - WinnerAward: Coretta Scott King Award - WinnerReview Citations: School Library Journal 08/01/2016 pg. 127Kirkus Reviews 01/01/0001Publishers Weekly 08/08/2016Kirkus Reviews 08/01/2016 pg. 147Booklist 09/15/2016 pg. 48Shelf Awareness 10/25/2016Horn Book Magazine 11/01/2016 pg. 101Bulletin of Ctr for Child Bks 12/01/2016School Library Journal 12/01/2016 pg. 40School Library Journal 02/01/2017 pg. 49Hornbook Guide to Children 01/01/2017 - Outstanding, Noteworthy In StyleAccelerated Reader Quiz #/Name: 183793 / Radiant Child: The Story of Young Artist Jean-Michel BasquiatReading Level: 4.7 / Interest Level: Lower Grade / Point Value: 0.5
