I really liked that the author and illustrator have managed to write an engaging book for children as well as including cultural events and bands which will appeal to adults.
I don't know what criteria they use for selecting the subjects of their biographies, but the varied and interesting people in this series have all been winners in my opinion.
Well worth a read. Would make a good library selection or gift.
Disclosure: I received an ARC at no cost from the author/publisher for review purposes
Vivienne Westwood was born in England to a family of shoemakers, but she became interested in art and fashion. Her odd designs were favored by famous punk bands and her later fashions focused on sustainable clothing in the face of climate change.
This is a short book, but features a person who wasn't afraid to upend things for art and activism. I liked the illustrations, but not as much as in some volumes. The book ends with a timeline about Vivienne's life.
I received a review copy of this ebook from Quarto Publishing Group - Frances Lincoln Childrens, and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this ebook.
