People everywhere recognize the art of Norman Rockwell, but who was he? Robert Burleigh introduces this beloved illustrator to readers to 4 to 8, letting Rockwell tell his life story with an emphasis on his formative years, when he learned to tell stories through art. A classic himself, Wendell Minor is the ideal choice to illustrate this biography; using watercolor, gouache, and pencil, he gives us a personable Norman and even renders his own versions of some of the iconic Saturday Evening Post covers. The appendix includes additional information on Rockwell, and includes reproductions of five of his most famous works.
