Cézanne and the Apple Boy

This brand-new title in Laurence Anholt’s beautifully illustrated children’s series of stories about famous artists, Anholt’s Artists Books for Children, recounts an adventure experienced by Paul, a little boy who is named after his father, Paul Cézanne.

The elder Cézanne had been away from home for so long that the boy has difficulty recognizing his father when he joins him on a painting expedition in the mountains of southern France. They quickly become fast friends, and the artist takes pleasure in painting a portrait of his apple-cheeked son. Most of his paintings, however, are landscapes of the mountain country where they are camping.

The people who live nearby often laugh at the artist’s pictures, which they think are poorly done. But young Paul admires his father’s work — and he isn’t alone. A picture dealer from Paris happens to be in the region, and when he sees Cézanne’s paintings, he thinks they are wonderful. Before long, Cézanne becomes famous and wealthy.

The story, enhanced with Laurence Anholt’s illustrations on every page, include several reproductions of Cézanne’s famous paintings.

Laurence Anholt’s popular books for children have been published in 15 different languages, including Cantonese, Hebrew, and Icelandic. As both an author and an accomplished illustrator, he has created a charming series of children’s stories about famous artists. He and his wife, Catherine, both successful authors of juvenile titles, have three children, from whom they obtain many of their story ideas. They live and work in Lyme Regis, Dorset, England.

Appropriate for children ages 4–7.
