Radiant Child: The Story of Young Artist Jean-Michel Basquiat by Javaka Steptoe
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Thanks, Caldecott committee, for honoring this book with an award! I'm a rural modern art idiot, so I'd never heard of Basquiat before reading this book, but I loved how Steptoe imitated his art. Very cool. So much to look at! And, hey, famous people have bad things happen to their family members. I appreciated how the author didn't sugarcoat Basquiat's mother's illness.
