He may not be much of a shepherd, but this talented 8-year-old boy doesnt have to remain one for long- after timidly introducing himself to the painter Cimabue, he becomes the Florentine painters protégé--and before long Cimabue looks at Giottos work and thinks, the pupil has outdone the master.

The present tense lends immense vitality to this simple exercise in biography, written by Italian art critic Paolo Guarnieri and translated by Jonathan Galassi. The lively, immediate story is perfectly matched by the stunning paintings of Guarnieris wife, Bimba Landmann, which imitate the style of the great pre-Renaissance master while maintaining their own absolutely modern flavor. Children who find themselves absorbed in drawing, music, or any project other than the one at hand will find young Giottos story inspirational. (Click to see a sample spread.
