Sylvette was a shy girl with many secrets. She dreamed of being an artist, but no one knew of her plans. One summer, the famous Picasso came to Sylvette's town, Vallauris. Amazingly, out of all the people in the town, Picasso chose her as his model. Gradually, Sylvette came to view the famous artist as a father and told him of her secret ambitions. This is the true story of Sylvette David, who modelled for Picasso in 1954. She now lives in the West of England, where she works as a painter and sculptor.

Thus is a great introduction to the work of Picasso that brings his story vividly to life. Based on a true story, the book details the inspiration that Piscasso took from a young girl by the name of Slyvette. It outlines how they met and the impact they had in each other. Through the story, there is reference to many of his famous paintings. At the end there is also a more detailed biography if your child wants to learn more. My son loved the story, and was curious to find out more about Picasso's work as a result. This is part of an amazing series of books about a range of artists and the inspirations behind their works.
