"David Bowie is not a name I you would have thought of to add to this Little People, Big Dreams series. Having read it now, and comparing it with some of these books already reviewed, this iconic Rock superstar deserves his story to be shared. My initial reluctance to absorb his hype is perhaps due to him being part of my growing up and musical appreciation.
Bowie's ordinariness is the first aspect of his life that grabs your attention. Thereafter, it is his drive, his desire to be the complete performer in terms of music, design and personality. At a time when everyone was emerging from known musical roots; he made deliberate changes to his sound and image.
The key to the success of these books are the lack of words; potted facts are shared and gloriously enhanced by simple but detailed illustrations. The words shared are well chosen, as they build a clear picture and promote an intimacy with each subject.
Bowie's music came to be played when the first moon landing happened and his lyrics have fashioned cult TV detective shows in the U.K. He deserves this short biography and hopefully it will enable family conversations around pop culture and find Bowie's unique sound.

"This was a short and sweet non-fiction book about the life of the fabulous singer/songwriter and legend, David Bowie. Part of the series, ‘Little People, BIG DREAMS’, this is the second one I’ve read.

The wonderful illustrations in the book really complemented the text and I am sure both adults and small children will delight in this book as much as I did!

If you're a Bowie fan this would be a perfect gift for your little reader! Rating: 5 Stars

Thank you to NetGalley and Quarto Publishing Group for the complimentary ARC. This is my honest and totally voluntary opinion.

"As a lover of David Bowie, I was beyond excited to read this story. He was such an inspirational person to so many people. Not just because of his music but because of what he stood for. He was absolutely and always himself. And he inspired people to be whoever they wanted to be. A point that this book gets across beautifully and in a very Bowie way.

This book, more than any of the others I've read, feels true to who Bowie was as a person. It tells his story in a simple but understandable way. It manages to show the impact he had and is a beautiful and charming book. The illustrations are quirky and a perfect accompaniment. This is exactly the kind of book that will keep any Bowie fan or any Bowie fan's child happy.

"Originally published on my blog: Nonstop Reader.

David Bowie is a new biography for young readers in the Little People, Big Dreams series. I've reviewed a number of these titles and they all manage to pack an impressive amount of detail in these little books in an age-appropriate and accessible manner.

Due out 2nd May 2019 from Quarto on their Frances Lincoln imprint, it'll be 32 pages and will be available in hardcover, and ebook formats.

Written by Isabel Sánchez Vegara it's well written in clear accessible language. The gentle and sweetly humorous illustrations were well done. I loved the series of pictures of Bowie through his different stage incarnations. The art by Ana Albero is appealing and colorful and supports the text very well. The illustrations are rich in small subtle details which bear a closer look (like the little green alien who appears in cameos throughout the book).

Well written and appealing, I am really enjoying all of these little books. This one is a worthy addition.

Five stars. This would make a superlative reading circle book, classroom library book, or gift. Bowie was an intelligent and important cultural icon.

Disclosure: I received an ARC at no cost from the author/publisher for review purposes
