Book Overview

A gorgeous, lyrical picture-book biography of Vincent van Gogh by the Caldecott Honor team behind The Noisy Paint Box.

Vincent can't sleep . . .
out, out, out he runs
flying through the garden--marigold, geranium, blackberry, raspberry--
past the church with its tall steeple, down rolling hills and sandy paths meant for sheep,
He dives at last into the velvety, violet heath, snuggles under a blanket of sapphire sky,
and looks up, up, up . . . to visit with the stars.

Vincent van Gogh often found himself unable to sleep and wandered under starlit skies. Those nighttime experiences provided the inspiration for many of his paintings, including his most famous, The Starry Night. Van Gogh sold only one painting in his lifetime--but he continued to pursue his unique vision, and ultimately became one of the most beloved artists of all time.

From the same team behind the Caldecott Honor Book The Noisy Paint Box, Vincent Can't Sleep is a stunning book that offers insight into the true meaning of creativity and commitment.

Praise for The Noisy Paint Box:

Even those who aren't inspired to visit a museum will take away the lesson of Kandinsky's life: Listen to what excites you and follow its call. --The New York Times

   Outstanding Biography About Vincent Van Gogh!
Interesting biography of the postimpressionist artist Vincent Van Gogh. It is a creative angle that summarizes Van Gogh's amazing ability to paint night-time scenes. The author made it clear to children that Van Gogh used vivid strokes and color. I highly recommend this book for children interested in art history or gaining an insight into a style of painting.
This may be the best thing I've ever bought. They keep his story as genuine as possible, while still being child friendly and the illustrations are INCREDIBLE. I keep this book forever.
