Jean-Michel Basquiat and his unique, collage-style paintings rocked to fame in the 1980s as a cultural phenomenon unlike anything the art world had ever seen. But before that, he was a little boy who saw art everywhere: in poetry books and museums, in games and in the words that we speak, and in the pulsing energy of New York City. Now, award-winning illustrator Javaka Steptoe’s vivid text and bold artwork echoing Basquiat’s own introduce young readers to the powerful message that art doesn’t always have to be neat or clean–and definitely not inside the lines–to be beautiful.

Overall a heart warming story with a happy and satisfying ending!

New Non Fiction: Take a journey into the wild, Mythological lands and to a galaxy far, far away.

Another school term has began and Wellington City Libraries has some new non-fiction books for you to get stuck into. Enjoy!

Greek Myths.

Orpheus and Eurydice.

What is mythology? The Free Dictionary defines mythology as “a traditional, typically ancient story dealing with supernatural beings, ancestors, or heroes that serves as a fundamental type in the worldview of a people, as by explaining aspects of the natural world or delineating the psychology, customs, or ideals of society.” While the Oxford Dictionary defines mythology as “a collection of myths, especially one belonging to a particular religious or cultural tradition.”

If you are interested in Greek mythology and looking for shorter and easier myths to read than Rick Riordan’s “Percy Jackson & the Olympians”, then this story of Orpheus and Eurydice will  appeal to fans of that series. Shakespeare once said “the course of true love never did run smooth.” At least not for Orpheus and Eurydice. So when Eurydice is killed by a snakebite on her wedding day, her husband, Orpheus journeys to the Underworld to negotiate with Hades himself to win his bride back. Can true love triumph over the dark power of the Underworld? You’ll have to read the story to find out.

Also check out Myths in 30 Seconds for easy reads on Greek, Roman… pretty much myths and legends around the world. This book is a perfectly enchanting introduction to mythology for lively minds.
