This book is a nice Dali biography for the young student;or for the parent who wants to get a jump on their pre-school's child cultural education. The vibrant colors and reproductions of Dali's paintings are attention-grabbers that will have most young minds intrigued.One of the strong points of this series is making connections to other famous people and events of the artists time period. For example, the student is also introduced to such illuminaries as Albert Einstein and Sigmund Freud and their relationship to Dali. The book is not limited to just these men but also makes time references and other connections to others like Hitler, Franco and Dali's friends Andre Benton, Picasso and Luis Bunuel. His influences on future artists is also discussed. Many of Dali's famous painting are recreated like Christ of St. John of the Cross,The Enigma of Hitler,Autumn Cannabalism, and The Persistence of Memory. This book also features a timelime that runs throughout the book at the bottom of the page that features major world events and art related events. Included at the end of the book is a glossary and page that shows major world wide museums that feature Dali works, including the famous Dali Theater-Museum, Figueres that he created and in which he is buried beneath. The museum listings come with addresses and web sites. This is an outstanding small biography for the young student in the middle school years. If a student becomes interested in the works of Dali through this introduction there are many books available, including Dali and the excellent book entitled DALI. This school age biography is recommended for school and community libraries and personal art libraries.
