Product Description

About the Author

A pioneering American sculptor and artist, Alexander Calder (1898–1976) is best known for his invention of the mobile. His playful sense of humor is evident throughout his works, which range from jewelry and toys to tiny, matchbox-sized wire sculptures and grand 70-foot steel sculptures that grace plazas throughout the world.

Not for kids 26 Sept. 2013
By Elaine - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I can see the value of this book, but it's certainly not right for kids. The line drawings clearly depict the genitals of all the humans in the book. Also, the text originally dates from 1692 and again, would not be comprehensible to children. If you're specifically searching for line drawings by Alexander Calder, and text in old-English language, then this is the book for you. If you're just searching for an enjoyable set of Aesop's fables that you can share with kids, this is not the best choice.

graphic pictures 11 May 2010
By Liz - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The drawings were cool but I bought this for children and the drawings were more explicit than I thought were wanted for kids. The people have anatomically correct parts and there are quite a few humans in the book.
