My brother doesn't like Bourgeois' work, but even he loved this book. She has a fascinating childhood, and the illustrations incorporate her artwork beautifully. Plus Abrams did an excellent production job. This is one of my all time favorite children's books.
This book is beautifully written and really expresses the magic and scale of Louise Bourgeois's art and the impact it has on viewers. It is perfectly illustrated to bring her story to life. My five year old daughter loves it just as much as I do. I bought it for her birthday as a special gift as Louise Bourgeois is her namesake. ❤️
Assolutamente uno dei più bei libri illustrati dell’ultimo decennio. Da avere! Lo straconsiglio! I colori sono straordinari. Le illustrazioni sono opere d’arte! Nelle ultime pagine c’è anche una breve bio. Il libro è arrivato nei tempi previsti.
I love everything about this book. There are a couple bits that I am not sure I want to read to my almost-5 yr old, but overall this is lovely. I bought it for myself but I guess I'll let some children look at it too :)
This charming book is beyond wonderful. It brings texture on smooth paper pages, It offers the joy of process in its beautiful river analogy. Louise Bourgoise becomes accessible and understood in a deeply personal engagement with the beauty in life that is directly connected with the real and tangible. It is a singular gift that gives anew each time the cover is opened.
I read this book at Bart's Books in Ojai, CA. I don't know why I didn't buy it, but regretted it later, and I don't live there. So I just ordered this and had it sent to my friend. It is illustrated beautifully, and the beautiful story is based on a French woman who actually lived.
A excellent written & interwoven storyline of the relationship between Louise Bourgeois & her Mother & the artistic influences this had on Louise work. Easy to read & beautifully coloured illustrations highlight the wonderful written text.
Gorgeous book and lovely language. My six-year-old who is a high level reader still adores picture books, and I'm always trying to find ones that are substantive and educational. Neither of us knew a thing about Louise, but this book was a great entry. Highly recommended!
