WHAAM! says it all Feb. 13 2010
By P. French - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I bought this book as a reference material for 5th graders when I was teaching a Pop Art lesson in each art and computer. I love the quality of the images and the information it provided for my students. The book is about 12" x 12" for the images are nice and big with lots of detail. I would recommend this book to anyone.

Great Coffee Table Book Jan. 26 2013

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I looked at several Lichtenstein books before deciding on this one. I didn't realize that this was a children's book though! It would have helped to know that before purchasing it. However, the book itself was informative and the pictures were great.

Pop onto the Life of an Artist May 12 2012
By Ms Kristin M Earnst - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
The reproductions of Lichtenstein's cartoon/comic-inspired art works are the immediate draw of this book for many youngsters, but the extensively researched text also provides older youths with insights into how a child who loves art becomes a mature working artist (including schooling, shows, side-jobs, setbacks, breakthroughs, and historical and contemporary inspirations). Rubin has also written books of comparable depth on artists Thiebaud, Warhol, Hopper, and O'Keeffe, but this one on Lichtenstein has the most "curb appeal."

By Shelli - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This was an informative and entertaining look into the life and evolving work of Roy Lichtenstein. One of my favorite parts was when Roy’s son David came home from school and described a classroom discussion about what their fathers did for a living. Young David complained that all the other fathers had interesting jobs “and you’re an artist and you can’t draw.” This moment of honesty from his son inspired Roy to forever change the direction of his art.

Written simply enough for a child, but very enjoyable for an adult. Great pictures help you visualize the nuances of his artwork in detail enabling the budding artist to copy and develop the techniques and style of this master through studying the beautiful photos of his artwork.
