Big PB Planet applause for Georgia Rises: A Day in the Life of Georgia O'Keeffe by Kathryn Lasky, illustrated by Ora Eitan (Melanie Kroupa Books; Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 2009). A spectacular insight into the artistic process of the legendary American artist, as revealed through a single day's waking, walking, and examining the minute details of her beloved New Mexican landscape. Both the text (inspired by O'Keeffe's own letters) and the illustrations of this book are so rich with color, reading this book will leave you longing to create in your chosen medium (or even try your hand at a new one). Zoom on over to your local bookstore and bring it back to your home planet today.
Welcome to PB Planet!
