Review

"An appealing and slightly humorous portrayal of O'Keefe's artistic vision and determination, along with a peek at the Hawaii of over half a century ago...accessible, unfussy and visually charming."--Kirkus

"A rich and unexpected depiction of a treasured artist."--Publishers Weekly, starred review

People of all ages will love the story of Georgia O'Keefe's working vacation to Hawaii in 1938. The text is simple yet draws you in to a fascinating, yet little known, story about the famous artist and the exotic islands that changed her life and influenced her work. The illustrations are beautiful and painted in a style similar to O'Keefe's. I highly recommend this book.

A strong and magical book, with beautiful illustrations, particularly the flowers. It is a powerful story of Georgia O'Keefe's artistic integrity in the face of corporate (Dole) demands

A simple book if you are studyingO'Keefe, but it covers a less known part of her life. This is a good one to add to your collection of art for children. I reccomend Georgia's Bones as well.

My first grader and I studied Georgia O'Keeffe before we took a trip to Hawaii and this was her favorite book. It's a nice story about being yourself and the pictures are beautiful. I wish the book reproduced at least one real painting, but we got other books for that.
