It will be a child's recitation of these words that will make parents proud of the purchase of Bijou Le Tord's book, A Bird or Two. A Bird or Two, which is a biography of Heni Matisse, does not simply factualize the life of the famous painter, instead it fleshes him out and gives him spirit, life, and strength. As an introduction to the world of art, Le Tord's book is brilliant.
The book itself is a piece of art, thus it reflects the work of it's hero, Matisse, in a way that facts cannot. In Le Tord's book there lies a well-defined tribute to the famous artist which even the youngest child can grasp and cherish.
