Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0316186023, Hardcover)Dionetti tells the story of Vincent van Gogh's time in Arles through the fictional eyes of his charlady's daughter, Claudine. The story does not attempt to convey the painter's angst in any deep psychological or historically accurate way--his self-mutilation is peremptorily dealt with as a symptom of his unhappiness at being an unappreciated genius--but the little girl's dawning appreciation of the radical paintings he is producing serves as a way of opening the child readers' eyes to the shock and possibility of the unconventional. Kevin Hawke's illustrations are evocative of van Gogh's style.

Entranced by the paintings of the unconventional artist Vincent Van Gogh, for whom her mother is working as a housekeeper, Claudine is saddened when the townspeople turn against him.
