Diego was a boy who loved to draw; he drew on everything, even the walls. In time, he would become known as one of the greatest muralists in all of Mexico?in all the world. "An accessible picture book about the life and work of Diego Rivera sounds like an oxymoron, but Winter and Winter succeed beyond belief," announced School Library Journal in a 1991 starred review. With spare, lyrical text?featured in both English and Spanish on every page?accompanying miniature murals done in Rivera's own vibrant style, this celebrated picture-book biography now makes a much deserved return to hardcover after a seven-year absence.

From the Inside Flap:

This story of Diego Rivera, the greatest muralist of Mexico--and of the world--is told in Spanish and English. Vibrant miniature paintings convey the sense of adventure and magic that marked Rivera's early years. And the story shows how his passion for painting and love for his country combined to make a powerful art celebrating the Mexican people

----------

Es la historia de Diego Rivera, el gran muralista Mejicano--y del mundo--y está contada en Español y en Inglés.  Vibrantes pinturas en miniatura transmiten el sentido de magia  y aventura que marcaron los primeros años de Rivera y la historia nos muestra como al combinar su pasión por la pintura y el amor por su país logró un poderoso arte que reconoce al pueblo Mejicano.

From the Back Cover:

"An accessible picture book about the life of Diego Rivera sounds like an oxymoron, but Winter and Winter succeed beyond belief. His early life is the focus; the text in Spanish and English captions the paintings. It does a journeyman's job of conveying facts in well-condensed sentences; the Spanish translation is clear and easy to follow. The paintings are done in Rivera's own colossal style, even though they actually measure only a few inches square. Winter displays her clear knowledge of and love for her subject."--(starred) School Library Journal.
