I used this biography when doing an author/illustrator study on Ezra Jack Keats. This book gave me almost everything I needed to know. It contains a comprehensive biography of Ezra Jack Keats, including some of Keats' earliest and least-known paintings, as well as analyses of Keats' work. The biography section was particularly interesting because it had many quotations from Ezra Jack Keats and his friends. Reading Ezra Jack Keats' own expressions and ideas gave me a better understanding of Keats' motivations. The analyses were also very useful and I learned a great deal about artistic techniques like collage and paper marbling. This book would work for middle or high school students, depending on which areas the students focused on. High school students might find the analyses of art easier to understand than middle school students would. ( )
