Artists and their pets
Susie Hodge’s Artists and their Pets was produced for a US publisher: ‘a chunky little book with brilliant illustrations’ she says. From this you can discover some very strange facts indeed – such as that Picasso had a white mouse and a goat, and Salvador Dali liked ocelots and anteaters. Age range 9–12. Illustrations by Violet Lemay.
