The Secret World of Walter Anderson
author: Hester Bass
illustrator: E. B. Lewis
In a beautifully crafted biography, Hester Bass and Caldecott Honor winner E. B. Lewis pay homage to the most famous American artist you’ve never heard of. Reclusive nature-lover Walter Anderson spent weeks at a time on an uninhabited island, sketching and painting the natural surroundings and animals to create some of his most brilliant watercolors, which he kept hidden during his lifetime.
“A gorgeous chronicle of a versatile southern American artist.” — Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
