This one-of-a-kind book explores the life and art of Keith Haring from his childhood through his meteoric rise to fame. It sheds light on this important artist's great humanity, his concern for children, and his disregard for the establishment art world.

Review Quotes




* "This laudatory biography, written by Haring'ssister, is guided by his unapologetic rejection of artistic pretension and illustratedin--what else?--a friendly and accessible cartoony style that fluidly integratesHaring's own work on subway cars and buildings, as well as in galleries." -- Horn Book, starred review

"Neubecker's colorful illustrations capture the energy with which Keith [Haring] lived his life, and cleverly integrate some of the artist's original works... Always upbeat, this story is a celebration of art and life." -- Booklist

"Neubecker neatly incorporates Haring's real pieces into these zesty, bustling, digital-and-pencil illustrations.... Haring's work pops; Neubecker's compositions and enthusiastic crowd scenes do it wonderful credit." -- Kirkus

"An enlightening look at the merits of street art and how it allows those who may not ordinarily venture into a museum or gallery to experience and enjoy art....Children will relate to young Haring's drive to pursue his calling despite naysayers." --School Library Journal

"Cheerily energetic....Schools with "Picture Person" programs, as well as primary grades art teachers, will want to share this appealing title." --BCCB

"Exuberant...Neubecker (I Won a What?) combines images of Haring's work (all identified in a closing spread) with his own punchy cartooning, which dovetails perfectly with the effervescent energy that characterized Haring's imagery." --Publishers Weekly
