As a boy, Sandy was always fiddling with odds and ends, making objects for friends. When he got older he started creating wire sculptures. Sandy made a lion. Next came a lion cage.

From the Publisher:
Having always been artistic in his youth, Alexander Calder began working with wire sculptures and soon created an entirely unique, sculpted circus in a style that no one had ever seen before in this true story about the invention of the first mobile.
Starting in childhood, the story of sculptor Alexander Calder, known as Sandy, is told in this whimsically illustrated picture book. From a very young age, Sandy loved creating little sculptures, and this talent became a life-time passion and career. As an adult, Paris was a great source of inspiration for Sandy, and he eventually created several suitcases full of a miniature circus in sculpture format before creating his famous mobiles. With gorgeous illustrations by Boris Kulikov. A Kirkus Reviews Best Children's Book of 2008.


"Calder's name is nearly synonymous with these creations, and Stone and Kulikov spin out a fast-moving tale that is in keeping with their high-energy subject." 9/1/2008

"Kulikov's mixed-media artwork is as imaginative and playful as his subject." 09/01/2008
