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. Before he knew it, he had an entire circus and was traveling between Paris and New York performing a brand-new kind of art for amazed audiences. *Author: Stone, Tanya Lee/ Kulikov, Boris (ILT) *Subtitle: A Story About Alexander Calder *Publication Date: 2008/09/04 *Number of Pages: 32 *Binding Type: School And Library *Grade Level: 1-2 *Language: English *Depth: 0.50 *Width: 9.50 *Height: 11.00
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.
Annotation:
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.

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