Somewhere in Brooklyn, a little boy dreams of being a famous artist, not knowing that one day he would make himself a king.
 
Jean-Michel Basquiat and his unique, collage-style paintings rocketed to fame in the 1980s as a cultural phenomenon unlike anything the art world had ever seen. But before that, he was a little boy who saw art everywhere: in poetry books and museums, in games and in the words that we speak, and in the pulsing energy of New York City. Now, award-winning illustrator Javaka Steptoe's vivid text and bold artwork echoing Basquiat's own style introduces young readers to the powerful message that art doesn't always have to be neat or clean--and definitely not inside the lines--to be beautiful.
This stunning picture book was awarded the 2017 Randolph Caldecott Medal and the 2017 Coretta Scott King Illustrator Award.
