This is a unique book. I like the way the author has given the information about the life of Edgar Degas as a child reporting it. I can see how this book would draw young readers to explore its pages filled with color and at the same time learn about the life of Edgar Degas. Illustrations are amazing and I think they make the book! ( )

This book is a report told through a young girl's voice. It is about Edgar Degas' life from the time he was born to the time he died. His paintings, photography, and many other achievments are fun to read in this colorful book. ( )
