Meet Pablo Picasso, one of the world’s greatest artists in the 20th century.
Little Pablo grew up in an artistic household and after drawing his first painting at nine years old. His dad was an art teacher and helped grow his son’s talent, teaching him to use oil paints.
He moved first to Barcelona and then to France, where he achieved significant success, and went on to becoming one of the most influential artists of the 20th century. His artistic style inspired many movements in art, music and literature, which we still see today. This powerful book features stylish and quirky illustrations and extra facts at the back, including a biographical timeline with historical photos and a detailed profile of the Pablo Picasso’s life.
Maria Isabel Sánchez Vegara is the author and creator of the inspirational best-selling series Little People, BIG DREAMS. Growing up in the ’70s in Barcelona, her heroines were Pippi Longstocking, Momo and Tinkerbell, and she felt great admiration for the Spanish poet Gloria Fuertes. She dreamed of becoming a poet just like her one day. It took Maria Isabel almost 40 years and most of her savings to make her dream come true. In 2012, after 20 years of working in advertising, she self-published her first book. Two years later, she released what was meant to be a birth present for her twin nieces, Alba and Claudia: the very first title in the Little People, BIG DREAMS series.
Teresa Bellon was born in Albacete, Spain in 1987. She spent a few years wandering around before she did an Illustration Course in Madrid. As a result, she began working for national and international clients and her work has been exhibited all over Spain. Influenced by Portuguese and Nordic illustrators of children's books, her drawings have a touch of naivety, reduced ranges of colors, and simple compositions. Teresa doesn’t stay at home waiting for inspiration, she sets out to find it. So she travels, buys illustrated books, and walks a lot around her home city, Madrid.
