'Kid Artists' by David Stabler with illustrations by Doogie Horner tells the story of many famous artists and events that happened when they were growing up.
In some cases, it tells how nature inspired them, like Emily Carr and Georgia O'Keeffe. Sometimes it was a rough life, like being shy like Charles Schulz, or a family losing it's fortune, like Yoko Ono. There are also stories about Pablo Picasso, Frida Kahlo and others.
The stories include illustrations which are mostly humorous. These don't lessen the tragedy of some of the stories, but they help to show the young artists at work and play. It's a well represented group of artists and it reads very well for a book for younger readers.
