Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 1–4—A stirring tribute to a prominent pioneer of abstract art, Paintbox follows the life of Russian-born artist Vasya Kandinsky from his childhood to adulthood, conveying the astounding imagery conjured in the painter's (probably genetic) condition, synesthesia, which caused sensory fields to collide in explosions that enabled him, for example, to hear colors. In this delightful homage, Rosenstock's crisp visual language unites with GrandPré's deeply expressive and whimsical paintings to re-create the intriguing world of art as seen through Kandinsky's distinct lens. The book offers diverse potential for different types of study, whether one is reading for information or for pleasure. Outstanding.—Kathryn Diman, Bass Harbor Memorial Library, Bernard, ME

From Booklist

*Starred Review* Richly colored, large acrylic paint and paper collage pictures illustrate the life of Vasily Kandinsky, one of the first painters of abstract art. As a young boy, Vasya was given a paint box, and when he first mixed colors, he was amazed to find he could hear the colors he created. Throughout his early life, Kandinsky struggled to live as others expected but couldn’t forget his exhilarating experiences with painting. Even after giving in and taking lessons, he was unable to suppress the need to create his own style of art. He would see colors and hear music, hear music and see colors. Art should make you feel. Like music. Narrow white frames surround the wonderfully dense illustrations that reveal the sounds the colors make to the artist. The rich word choice is a delight: pistachio, cobalt, and saffron introduce readers to colors while hissing, blaring, and whispering reveal the sounds of the colors. This not a full biography, but rather a revelation of a real and talented person striving to express himself—and succeeding. The author’s note and source list impart more information. This is a beautiful blend of colors, music, and life. Grades K-2. --Maryann Owen

5.0 out of 5 stars best kids book ever
By Liz The Lizard Lady on July 14, 2018
this book is wonderfully illustrated and such an amazing story of Vasya Kandinsky growing up. I felt such a strong connection to his story,

I actually originally got this book from the library. I had found it through googling on my kindle about cute illustrated kids books. Of course recommendations popped up, I made a list, checked our local library and I got a huge stack of super cool kids books to read to my little four year old friend. I was so excited to go through the books with her. Anila. And I am not sure why I saved This title for last. We had Pout Pout Fish, and Mr McGee and the Sea, Bats at the Beach, Beckle, and don't take your Alligator to School. GREAT GREAT selection/ collection. We had Those Darn Squirrels also, but she refused to hear about an old man being mean to squirrels. :-)

Anyway, I am reading the books to her.. and I Always embellish the stories.. she Is four, adding silly comments about the pictures, adding to the story line.. well, when I got to this book it all went as normal.. (*and I hadn't read the book ahead of time) But, something about his parents treating the boy sorta mean, and not understanding his sensitive nature just resonated with me. I felt myself tear up, and I stopped reading to her. I thought, OH NO.. I can not cry in front of this sweet child. Over a silly cute book. So, I was struggling..and of course we had to turn the pages. I did the best I could. I felt like I had totally botched up this Fantastic book for her. Like I always do.. I wanted to hear her opinion about which book was her favorite. I asked her. She pointed to The Noisy Paintbox. We live in boats, on the ocean. I assumed she would pick Pout Pout Fish, which is ADORABLE by the way. I thought, maybe it was all tooooo many books to absorb/remember.. I spread them out, and said are you sure? and talked alittle about the titles. She adamantly, no, This is my favorite one. I was so Happy I hadn't ruined it for her.

photo of Anila attached, she is a special little friend. Whom I believe to be an "old soul". So grown up for her young years.

it actually made me cry. Not sure why it gave such strong emotions, but it is my very fav kids book.
