The Boy Who Bit Picasso Summary

The Boy Who Bit Picasso by Antony Penrose

Tony was a boy with a special friend--a world-famous artist by the name of Pablo Picasso. Tony and his parents entertained Picasso at their home in England, and they went to visit Picasso and his family in France, too. Tony, when a child, really did bite Picasso. And Picasso bit him back!

Filled with information about Picasso and his art, this book offers readers a rare glimpse into Picasso's personal life and features more than sixty-five illustrations, including artworks by Picasso, photographs by Lee Miller, and specially commissioned drawings by contemporary children.

Grown-up Tony, the son of photographer Lee Miller and painter-writer Sir Roland Penrose, shares his childhood memories of his remarkable playmate in this one-of-a-kind story.
