Paul Cezanne was one of the greatest of the French impressionist painters. This delightful book follows his son, also called Paul, as he travels to the mountains to spend a summer with his father. He discovers that his father, a very large man, paints the natural world with a passion that few can understand. But one day they meet an art dealer in a village who offers to try to sell some of the paintings in Paris ... the rest is history. The reader gains a real insight into Cezanne the man through the eyes of a child - sometimes frightening, fastidious (he won't touch other people), warm-hearted, driven by a passion for his art. And it provides a vivid introduction to Cezanne's work, with reproductions of his most famous paintings incorporated in the illustrations.

ABOUT 'SMART READS for Kids'...”Love Art, Love Learning” Welcome. Designed to expand and inspire young minds; this is a range of short educational books (with supporting free online resources) for ages 7+.

Locations or events mentioned are always accompanied by a colourful map or a snippet of history so that the opportunity to learn some general knowledge does not pass the young reader by. • Vocabulary. A manageable number of new words are introduced and reused. They are always in bold with clear definitions and pronunciations. There is also a Glossary. • Maths. At least one maths statement and its accompanying calculation is always included. • Concentration. Each book is in the friendly first person and a trail of footprints always leads to a cartoon animal at the end. The author asks questions of the reader and there is always a quiz.
