Pablo Picasso Breaking All the Rules

ISBN:  0-448-42862-8

Grade level:  5-8

Author:  True Kelley

Theme:  Art

This text provides many samples of Picasso’s artwork, along with a narrative from a student’s perspective on the various pieces of art.  The various styles of art (including Cubism) and interesting facts about Picasso are interspersed throughout the text.  There are a number of text features utilized throughout the story and an interesting presentation of information.  This text could be used to introduce an art lesson, as a biographical text on Picasso, or as a basis for a text feature discussion.  I recommend this book as an interesting read for junior or intermediate students,  as it presents Picasso in an engaging manner.
