A very funny story about how one boys interpretation of art causes havoc for his mother. Does introduces key themes in art, such as 'movement', 'texture'.

I am an Artist, is an incredibly inspirational book that follows a young boy whom is an aspiring artist. He sees potential in all that surrounds him; what seems simplistic to those around him (such as a sock) spikes his creative juices! His world is fully alive and active with colors, shapes and textures. He expresses that he is an artist and he cant not stop making art. The only problem is that his mother does not always see the genius in his artwork, so he sets out to make her the most ...more

I think this would be a really effective cross curricular book to introduce a topic in art.

In Ik ben een kunstenaar, van de Spaanse Marta Altés, vindt de naamloze hoofdpersoon overal inspiratie om kunstwerken te maken. Waar hij ook kijkt, ziet hij kunst. Hij tekent bij zichzelf een kunstzinnig snorretje. De grote spiegel in de hal versiert hij met een bolhoedje en armen en verandert die zo in een karakter van Roger Hargreaves. De kat, die op bijna alle pagina’s een rolletje heeft, bewerkt hij met de make-up van zijn moeder.

This little boy considers himself an artist while his mother thinks he is just making a mess.

This book serves as a good reminder that it is all about perspective. Especially with toddlers. While the behaviour might not always be appropriate, their intention isn't always how we see it. For instance, V is not trying to chew on my shoes because she is a brat, she is just curious. Either way, chewing on my shoes is not allowed.

V @ 6 months.

My 4.5 year old quite likes this, but the art references are wayyyyy too sophisticated for any kid (or adult actually) I know...

One of those books that should work for both children and adults because it reads on two levels and doesn't pull any punches. Over the top fun.

Marta Altes loves to tell stories and her love of illustration saw her study for a degree in Graphic Design in Barcelona. Marta moved to the UK to study for an MA in Children's Book Illustration at Cambridge School of Art (the best decision she ever made) and graduated last year.

What she likes the most about illustration is that it allows her to bring a smile to the person looking at her drawings
