I loved this book. I think the author did an awesome job of telling the story of Henri Rousseau. I especially loved the perspective it gave us on how he transformed from someone completely average to a world-renowned artist. I think it's important to have biographies in children's libraries because it gives children a fun way to learn about important people of their world without overloading them with the facts. ( )

This is the biography of the famous artist Henri Rousseau and how he struggled for years until he became an artist at 40 years old. Rousseau would wander Paris looking for inspiration, teaching himself to paint flowers, plants, and animals. The book did not have too many details and information which is good for young readers to focus on the story and still gain information. ( )

Henri Rousseau, a man in his forties, dreamed of being a painter instead of a toll collector. After he bought the supplies he needed, he started painting. he would showcase his work in big art exhibits, but critics would only laugh at him. being self taught he work each year, bringing his work to the exhibit each year and continuously getting laughed at. The more he studied and practiced the better he became. The younger critics had a different thought on the artist's work. This biography was one that did not keep me interested. It was straight forward with the information of Rousseau, but I feel as though the author could explore different ways to tell his wonderful story. ( )

This book is about the life of the artist Henri Rousseau. The author explains Rousseau's life as a poor artist who loved the jungle. In this book Roussea, starts his art career at the age of forty. He did not have much support from anyone, but he decided to give it a try anyway. His reasoning for trying was because he loved nature. He felt that nature took him into a new world that actually supported him. He is a poor man who cannot afford lessons, so he self teaches himself how to become an artist. One day he enters his art work into an exhibit and his work was torn to pieces. No one liked it or supported it. This did not stop Rousseau. He continued to be inspired by his dreams and nature to continue painting and entering his work. Finally, Picasso throws a banquet for Henri and his career took off. He is now one of the most brilliant self-taught artist in history. This book taught me to never give up on my dreams no matter how much other people bring you down. Rousseau never gave up and always persevered and now he is famous in the art industry. ( )

Henri Rousseau was a simple toll collector and used his paychecks to buy art supplies. He would wait all year to show off his artwork in the art show. He knew the critics might be harsh, but he was willing to hear what they had to say. For years they made fun of his artwork said it was like a child had made it. One day a young art crowd came around and loved his work after that the critic's opinion had changed. They though party's just to display Henri work. ( )

This charming book starts off with Rousseau at age 40 deciding to become an artist. ... Markel beautifully describes many aspects of Rousseau's later life and work; yet his early life is missing. Hall's illustrations are incredible and blend well with the story and Rousseau's own work. An illustrator's note reflects how they were painted along with two-page spreads of famous people Rousseau associated with. It would have been helpful to have a key of these people. This title could be used as a biography, but it really is great for an art teacher to help reveal the difficulties and disappointments of an artist. ...

... Markel’s gift here is that she is telling the story of someone overcoming the odds ... A combination of smart writing and smarter art is ideal, particularly when you’re dealing with picture book biographies. And The Fantastic Jungles of Henri Rousseau is nothing if not smart. It typifies the kind of bios I hope we see more of in the future. And, with any luck, it will help to create the kinds of people I’d like to see more of in the future. People like Henri Rousseau. Whatta fella. Whatta book.
... Thee sometimes straightforward, sometimes flowery text... is consistently informative, conveying his groundbreaking flat perspective, his inspiration by the plants and animals of faraway lands, and his determined personality, as well as interesting details of his life, such as his eventual place in a circle of Modernist artists and writers. Appended are an author’s note and an illustrator’s note.... Though she takes many liberties in scale and perspective, Hall’s lush watercolor and acrylic art bears a clear resemblance to Rousseau’s.... This successful tribute makes Rousseau... accessible, and inspirational, to a young audience.

[starred review] The career of artist Henri Rousseau gets a wonderfully child-friendly treatment in a book that captures both his personality and the essence of his pictures. ... children will be drawn to the story of someone whom no one believes in becoming a star anyway. Markel's text has a sweetness and simplicity that allows children to understand the story's underpinnings, giving them someone to root for. Initially, though, they'll be drawn by Hall's rich pictures... which are a credible homage to Rousseau's naive style. Kids will get a sense of the colors and vibrancy of the originals as well as their strength. ...

PreS-Gr 3 -- Drawing on the naïve techniques found in the paintings of the 19th-century French toll collector, Hall depicts Rousseau's life while introducing his style and subject matter in her fanciful watercolor and acrylic scenes. Markel's well-chosen episodes begin with the purchase of his first paints and brushes -- at age 40. Compact sentences convey this self-taught artist's rocky journey, leaving room for Hall's interpretation. ... This is not only a visually exciting introduction to a well-known artist, but also an uplifting model of passion and perseverance. ...
