First edition. 2017 Caldecott Medal Winner! Jean-Michael Basquiat and his unique, collage-style paintings rocketed to fame in the 1980s as a cultural phenomenon unlike anything the art world had ever seen. But before that, he was a little boy who saw art everywhere: in poetry books and museums, in games and in the words that we speak, and in the pulsing energy of New York City. Javaka Steptoe's vivid text and bold artwork echoes Basquiat's own, introducing young readers to the powerful message that art doesn't always have to be neat or clean – and definitely not inside the lines – to be beautiful. $150
