Praise For…


"The textual descriptions of Frankenthaler's process are gorgeous . . . [and] Sicuro's watercolor, ink, and charcoal pencil illustrations are spirited."

— Kirkus Reviews

"Sicuro’s bold illustrations are a wonderful match for a biography on an abstract artist; the saturated colors, thick lines, and rounded shapes work well with Brown’s descriptive text to immerse readers in Frankenthaler’s world . . . A pitch-perfect expression of a little-known artist in text and illustration alike, this is a top-notch example of the picture book biography."

— School Library Journal

"Brown uses lyrical text full of action words and ranges of color to describe this lesser-known yet influential abstract expressionist artist from the twentieth century . . . [Sicuro's] loosely drawn illustrations with thick strokes of watercolor, ink, and charcoal pencil evoke both Helen’s moods and her abstract style."

— Booklist

"Brown’s debut picture-book biography limns [Frankenthaler's] creative and imaginative childhood, dutiful art study in college, and early career in mid-twentieth-century NYC . . . Sicuro’s compositions—in watercolor, ink, and charcoal pencil . . . consistently reinforce the ideas of movement and color saturation."

— Horn Book Magazine

"With sweeping strokes, Sicuro conveys the young artist’s joy in the act of creation."

— Publishers Weekly
