about this item
This is a story of an artist who, from his earliest years, draws. The artist draws a star! Then, the tree, house, flowers, clouds, rainbow, and night.In drawing, he discovers not only his art, but his life. Holding on to his star, he creates a world of light and possibility.With his brilliant collage, poignant and powerful in its simplicity, Eric Carle creates an unforgettable story that celebrates imagination and the artist in us all.
In his drawings, an artist discovers not only his art, but also his own life and the universe around him, in a deceptively simple story featuring Carle's characteristic tissue-paper collages, enhanced by vivid acrylic paints.
