Gr 1-2-An addition to the already abundant supply of books about O'Keeffe. Text is very simply written and printed in a large, open typeface. Readers are told a bit about her childhood and adult life. While the writing is engaging, there is little of it. Small reproductions of her paintings are subdued in color, and some are a bit grainy. The author has interspersed his own wacky cartoons throughout. While intended to add fun to the learning process, they are jarring and clash with the subject's work. Robyn Turner's excellent Georgia O'Keefe (Little, 1991) is well written; has good-quality reproductions; and offers readers a sense of the woman's dedication, strong individualism, and passion for her work. Leslie Sills includes a strong chapter on O'Keeffe in Inspirations (Albert Whitman, 1989). For older readers, Beverly Gherman's Georgia O'Keefe (Atheneum, 1986) is a thorough and enjoyable read.-Alexandra Marris, Rochester Public Library, NY

These books are without a doubt the definitive-and most entertaining-biographies of artists for young readers.
