A collection of stories written by children from remote indigenous communities in Australia. Written in simple picture book formats, these tales are surprising, funny and touching I always try to take away something positive from any experience, and often find a memory will surface of a situation I've been in, or a person I've met.

I thought it was weird that he was giving out wigs for Christmas. It wasn't until after I watched a PBS documentary on him that I understood that he had been wearing wigs for a long time. Another thi This book was super cute!!

Another thing is that Andy's mom lived wit him. That's also in the books because she is gushing over the grandkids. It was a super cute book! I recommend it to all kids. Jun 05, Ben Truong rated it really liked it Shelves: picture-books , autobiography , childrens , memoir. It recounts the story of a young James Warhola on one of his visits to his uncle, Andy Warhol. June, at least in my part of the world is LGBT Pride Month, which I plan to read one children's book, particularly a biography, which pertains to the subject everyday this month.
Therefore, I thought that this book would be apropos for today. Andrew "Andy" Warhol was an American artist, director and producer who was a leading figure in the visual art movement known as pop art. His works explore the relationship between artistic expression, advertising, and celebrity culture that flourished by the s, and span a variety of media, including painting, silk-screening, photography, film, and sculpture.
The text is rather simplistic and straightforward.
The illustrations are beautiful done and depicted the narrative rather well. The premise of the book is rather straightforward. After paying tribute to his father, a scrap-metal sorter who delighted in bringing home interesting junk, Warhola recalls piling into the station wagon with his six siblings for the long ride to New York, then bursting into the townhouse shared by Andy Warhol, his mother, 25 cats named "Sam," and an enthralling clutter cookie jars, carousel figures, painted soup cartons, and portraits of celebrities.
All in all, Uncle Andy's: A Faabbbulous Visit With Andy Warhol is a wonderful tribute to art and the separation between junk and art is not as far as one thinks, because, as the young Warhol concludes, art is everywhere. This is a great gift to give to kids or adults , especially for anyone connected to Pittsburgh. James Warhola recounts a visit to his Uncle Andy Warhol: the house is full of art and wonderful junk. Jan 04, Julie rated it it was ok. I want to like this book, but meh.
Even what the book possibly reveals about art feels superficial as presented—that trash is art? My 5 year old also g I want to like this book, but meh. My 5 year old also grew bored with this book quickly, and she loves art and re-purposing her found treasures Sep 21, Celebrilomiel rated it it was ok Shelves: picture-books , read-in , picture-books-in This book assumes a pre-existing awareness of Andy Warhol, his personality, and his accomplishments, but it doesn't convey much about him himself except that he was eccentric, abstracted, wore a wig, and thought everything was art.
Maybe that's all you need to know about Andy Warhol. Jul 11, Sherry rated it really liked it. Delightful adventure as the oldest brother, a rural junkman, takes his wife and many children on surprise visits to his mother and his own youngest brother, the eccentric, "pop" artist Andy Warhol in NYC. JUst as his Dad makes "art" out of junkyard treasures, his son, inspired by Uncle Andy, starts creating his own "art," this time with his mother's support.

Picture Book Delightful book showing another side of the quirky artist-his family! The illustrations are fabulous and the first hand account by his nephew shows a loving if not conventional uncle. It gives great details about how Andy Warhol lived and how he comes by hoarding honestly. I loved the part about Andy passing along all of his old white wigs to him and his siblings. Jan 11, Margaret Bussan rated it liked it. This was a perfect text to pair with Me and Uncle Romie.
I used it in my 4th grade classroom during whole group and then we looked at text connections. Students made connections with going to visit family members, artists using junk and other items in their creations, and so much more. The book also provides one interpretation of the importance of making art. Oh, and there are lots of cats. Apr 11, Pam rated it really liked it Shelves: children-picture , art , bios-memoirs.
I love this story as it is both a book about a wonderful family, an fun trip to see family, and about a famous artist all wrapped into one. My only suggestion is I wish they had been a postscript with more information on Andy Warhol. James Warhola's text and illustrations mesh into a great book! Jun 06, Kaydee rated it it was amazing. I loved this book. It is filled with so many little Easter egg treasures for Warhol fans. Truly wonderful. Aug 14, Misbah rated it liked it Shelves: adventure , family-life , based-on-a-true-story.
