Leonie Bennett is a Heinemann Raintree author.From School Library Journal:
Grade 2-4-In condensing the lives and work of these complex artists, Bennett lapses into oversimplification and generalizations. This is particularly true when the author discusses the artists' emotions. "Sometimes Jackson's sadness made him angry." Adult issues of alcoholism, adultery, and womanizing are appropriately omitted; however, using words like "happy" and "unhappy" are often inadequate in describing the feelings of these movement-leading artists. The texts jump from fact to fact, and do not flow smoothly. The time lines give more facts than the narratives. For the most part, the suggestions for further reading are written at a higher grade level. Photographs of the artist and a dozen or so reproductions are included in each book as well as illustrations of scenes from the artist's life; however, the fictional quality of the latter renderings detracts from the factual nature of these titles. The reproductions are identified, but the sketches and photographs are not. Biographies for young readers are in demand; however, these titles should not be high on your list of purchases.-Carolyn Janssen, Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County, OH
