Editorial Reviews

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.

This is a lovely homage to the great Georgia O'Keeffe, and tells an interesting story about artistic integrity. Georgia went to Hawaii at the request of the Pineapple company now known as Dole. They wanted her to paint pineapple - but the working relationship was not great, and Georgia painted everything else in Hawaii - everything except pineapples! It's an inspiring story.

Eventually, after her return to the mainland, she did paint pineapples - and the amazing body of work that came from her time in Hawaii is well worth the time Dole waited for their pineapple paintings!

oops, I thought this was going to show us the paintings that Georgia O'Keeffe made. on re-reading the description I see that the mistake was mine, this book is exactly as described.

It is a delightful CHILDREN'S Story Book with lovely paintings done by the co-author. It claims to be inspired by Georgia's work, which no doubt is true, there are some definite similarities to Georgia's style. However it does not contain copies of any of Georgia's actual work. So if that is what you were looking for you will be disappointed.

None-the-less it is a delightful story about an empowered woman who defines her own path through life -- in an era when such things just weren't done...

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.

I bought this to read to an elementary class where we were studying Georgia O'Keeffe. From the description, I thought it would be an exciting story. I was very disappointed. The book did not include a single copy of her work and painted her as a spoiled brat. Therefore, there was really nothing positive for the children to gain from this book so I am going to try to return it. Though the reading level is lower, I found My Name is Georgia by Winter a better book to read aloud to the class. It also lacks any original copies but at least it tells a good story and I can use old calendar prints to show the kids copies of her work.
