Overview

2019 Green Earth Book Awards - Long List

The art and writing of Gwen Frostic are well known in her home state of Michigan and around the world, but this picture book biography tells the story behind Gwen's famous work. After a debilitating illness as a child, Gwen sought solace in art and nature. She learned to be persistent and independent--never taking no for an answer or letting her disabilities define her. After creating artwork for famous Detroiters and for display at the World's Fair and helping to build WWII bombers, Gwen moved her printmaking business to northern Michigan. She dedicated her work and her life to reminding people of the wonder and beauty in nature.

It says it's a 'picture book' and that should've given me a clue that this is not your normal autobiographical novel. It's14 pages of drawings and writing geared to young readers, especially little girls. Remarkable woman, but this is not the life story I was expecting it to be.
