Just Being Dali­: The Story of Artist Salvador Dali

Just Being Dali­: The Story of Artist Salvador Dali

List price: $18.99

Available: 7

This kid-friendly picture book biography celebrates the irrepressible individuality of Surrealist artist Salvador Dalí.

Salvador Dalí just couldn't help being himself. When he was little, he wasn't like the other children; he was a daydreamer who liked to play pretend. When he grew up, he became an artist, but he didn't want to make art that looked like everyone else's. He became the most famous painter of his time after he made a picture of melting clocks. He liked to do wild, attention-grabbing things: He drove a fancy car stuffed with 1,000 pounds of cauliflower. He gave a speech inside a deep-sea diving suit. And he took his pet ocelot Babou to lunch at snooty restaurants. He designed lollipop wrappers in exchange for free candy, a lobster phone that really worked, and a hat made out of a shoe! Here's the true story of the one and only Salvador Dalí, an artist who never stopped being himself.
