Description

New in Paperback. The twins Meret and Bella love their grandfather, Papa Chagall, and he loves telling them stories. One day, when they visit him in his studio, he tells them about his life - through four different stories, all told during a day they spend together.

"Anholt's colorful, squiggly artwork complements Chagall's own paintings, six of which are reproduced in the story. Several of Anholt's illustrations echo Chagall's works--both in composition and style--which makes for a pleasing mix." - Booklist
