    French Canadian author illustrator team Marie Danielle Croteau and Isabelle Arsenault craft an imaginative tale about the artist Paul Gauguin in this lovely picture book Following the Gauguin family as they sail for Peru, the narrative depicts Paul as an imaginative young boy with an invisible orange dog for a friend The adults around him indulge Paul, when it comes to this imaginary canine companion, but when Mr Gauguin dies of a heart attack on the sea voyage, the boy s ability to see thing French Canadian author illustrator team Marie Danielle Croteau and Isabelle Arsenault craft an imaginative tale about the artist Paul Gauguin in this lovely picture book Following the Gauguin family as they sail for Peru, the narrative depicts Paul as an imaginative young boy with an invisible orange dog for a friend The adults around him indulge Paul, when it comes to this imaginary canine companion, but when Mr Gauguin dies of a heart attack on the sea voyage, the boy s ability to see things from a different perspective becomes very useful Imagining the setting sun as his father s heart, he is comforted by its rise the next day When the family arrive in Peru and Paul meets an artist, he begins to paint his father s heartOriginally published in Montreal as Le coeur de monsieur Gauguin, this picture book takes considerable license with the true story of Paul Gauguin s childhood, and is not intended, I do not think, as a biographical title While the Gauguin family did travel to Peru, in 1850, and while M Clovis Gauguin did indeed die of a heart attack during the course of that voyage, Paul Gauguin was an eighteen month old baby at the time, and would therefore not at that time have had any of the responses or feelings regarding the subject, that are depicted in Croteau and Arsenault s book As a fictional story inspired by a factual one, I found Mr Gauguin s Heart engaging, offering a thoughtful exploration of the role of imagination and artistic creation in coping with loss and grief The artwork by Isabelle Arsenault has a painterly quality that feels quite different to some of her other books The style here is quite different from that in The Honeybee , for instance With the proviso that readers be aware that this is not a biographical or factual book, I would recommend this one to those seeking children s stories about death, grief and art

    I was very impressed that the author was inspired by the episode of the loss of her father during the trip to Peru of the Gauguin family The story is tender and may help those who have gone through that trance On the other hand it seemed exaggeratedly brief.

    While I liked the story very much, it felt rather flat The characters didn t seem real until the man on the ship helped Paul learn to paint The illustrations were wonderful.

    This lovely, quiet book may mean the world to an imaginative kid, especially one struggling with loss Paul Gauguin s father dies when Paul is still young enough to have an imaginary dog Paul is fortunate enough to meet an artist who shows him that painting is magicyou can bring things to life or prolong the life they had Paul paints a beautiful red sun, which for him is his father s heart that carried him away.

    Mr Gauguin s Heart by Marie Danielle Croteau, illustrated by Isabelle Arsenault, translated by Susan Ouriou 3 4th grade and up beautiful touching way to approach the topic of death with a child but also touching for seeing the development of art and creativity in Paul Gauguin Brilliant book, gorgeous illustrations.

    It took me a whole two seconds to find out that the book could hardly be called historical or factual Gauguin s father died when he was 18 months old, and from what I could find the family was definitely not Danish though I could be wrong there Made me muchdisappointed in the book after learning that.

  9. says:

    The full five stars are for the illustrations, which are magnificent The text itself was not as satisfying, but it was a very cool book nonetheless.
