Edward Hopper Paints His World (with Autographed Wendell Minor Bookplate)
Burleigh, Robert

As a boy, Edward Hopper knew exactly what he wanted to be when he grew up: on the cover of his pencil box, he wrote the words EDWARD HOPPER, WOULD-BE ARTIST. He traveled to New York and to Paris to hone his craft. And even though no one wanted to buy his paintings for a long time, he never stopped believing in his dream to be an artist. He was fascinated with painting light and shadow and his works explore this challenge.

Edward Hopper's story is one of courage, resilience, and determination. In this striking picture book biography, Robert Burleigh and Wendell Minor invite young readers into the world of a truly special American painter (most celebrated for his paintings "Nighthawks" and "Gas").

Minor Book Plate & Arctic Son - Hardcover
Minor, Wendell

Free book plate autographed by Wendell Minor with purchase.

In the Arctic, the Eskimo people welcome all children. If a baby is not Eskimo, it makes no difference to these loving people, who give the baby an Eskimo name. When Luke is born, he is given the Eskimo name Kupaaq.

Eskimo life has adjusted to the long summer day and the long winter night, the severe cold, and the arrival and departure of wildlife. Kupaaq's life is, in many ways, very different from the life of the average child in the lower forty-eight states, but in many ways his is also a universal experience shared by all children.

Jean Craighead George and Wendell Minor flew to Barrow, Alaska to research Arctic Son. There they traveled by dog sled far out on the Arctic sea ice, picnicked on frozen sandwiches, and climbed blue pressure ridges in temperatures well below zero. They also visited Aalak, an Inupiat village leader, who gave the name Kupaaq to Luke, Jean's Arctic-loving grandson.

"In this celebration of the American landscape, Siebert's measured verses convey the majesty of the mountain personified, Sierra herself. Minor's stunning acrylic paintings evoke the breathtaking beauty of his subject. There is a siren's-song quality to this lovely book [and] readers might well feel how tragically possible it is for us to love our wilderness to death." -- SLJ.

Each striking illustration, painted on hand-carved replicas of these signs, introduces readers to the people, places and events that gave birth to our nation.
