From the Inside Flap:

On a sunny hilltop in the south of France, two children find their grandfather in the company of a pink goat, a strange green man, flying people, and a funny cow wearing a hat!

Their grandfather is famed artist Marc Chagall, and all those strange and wonderful beings are depicted in his paintings. Chagall is best known for his imaginative use of color and imagery. His paintings have made people all over the world happy, even after years of war and sadness.

Here, Chagall tells his grandchildren of his happy life as a child, how he met his wife, and how he and his family escaped the war to come to America. Through it all, the good and the bad, he painted. “In your imagination...you can fly as high as you want,” he tells his grandchildren.

Beautifully illustrated with reproductions of some of Chagall’s best known work, Papa Chagall, Tell Us a Story is a wonderful introduction to the life and work of the man who told stories in paint!
