"A FASCINATING OUTSIDER ARTIST I VE "fascinating outsider artist I ve loved Cornell s boxes There is something so idiosyncratic about them lonely but touching This is a nice introduction that children can asily understand Jeanette Winter fans like me probably aren t giving unbiased reviews but this is great I am in love with the deceptively simple illustrations and text of this book The sparse text and art are all the moving for their simplicity Love it The I read about Joseph Cornell the I love him and this book certainly contributed to that While I appreciate Jeanette Winter s introduction to Joseph Cornell and his dream boxes book was written "And At Such A "illustrated at such a level that it would uickly bore many children and their parents The failure to show Cornell s actual artwork leaves the reader hopelessly uneducated about the artist It would have been so asy to layer this book such that readers of all levels would have found something of interest With only two books about Joseph Cornell geared towards children this one and The Amazing Collection of Joey Cornell this one certainly seems aimed at a younger audience But the story itself isn t specially ngaging and as many have said uite boring His life and interest in arts and bits of things love of sweets love of film massive collections are so much interesting than this I wasn t in love with the newest book One Ticket To Texas either but.
