The Boy Who Drew Birds: A Story of John James Audubon - Jacqueline Davies, Melissa Sweet
I really am a sucker for a well done picture book biography. I think Davies made a fantastic choice to focus in on a short period in Audubon's life. In this way we get a delightful little snapshot of the passionate and eccentric naturalist painter John James Audubon. The accompanying illustrations are just fantastic! It has to be somewhat daunting to illustrate an artist's biography! I love that the style is completely different from Audubon's and yet still seems to remain true to his spirit. Highly recommended!
