The Iridescence of Birds: A Book About Henri Matisse - Patricia MacLachlan, Hadley Hooper

Henri Matisse’s surroundings were colorless. Rain-drenched weather plagued his hometown, with only gray skies for miles around. But inside his home his mother made sure color flowed through their lives. Their curtains and rugs were of varying hues, hand-painted plates adorned the walls, and there was always The Iridescence of Birds (Roaring Brook, $17.99) on the window ledge, not far from Henri’s sight. Newbery award-winning author, Patricia MacLachlan explores what might have inspired this great artist to paint such vivid images. Coupled with vibrant illustrations by Hadley Hooper, this book is sure to make readers yearn to know more about Matisse and his colorful works of art.  Ages 4-8. KLG
