A beautiful tribute to the heartbreaking life of Jean-Michel Basquiat. I learned about Basquiat and his art style from Bethany Barton earlier this school year, and was happy to find this book on our shelves at home.

I think this book is for children at the intermediate and primary level. The pictures are for everyone including the story it is telling about being able to do the things you set your mind to. It is a true story about Jean-Michel and the things he went through as a child and young adult that got him to being a famous artist.

This book tells the story of Jean Michel-Basquiat and his journey to purse art.
This book could be used to demonstrate how to write a report on a historical figure.
