Magic Trash: A Story of Tyree Guyton and His Art Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Tyree barely heard the thwump-thwack of his brothers' games while he dreamed up designs. In school he sat alone, drawing pictures. When his report card came, his aunt asked, "Is Tyree dumb?" "Maybe crazy," his mama whispered.

Review:

"When Tyree Guyton was a child in Detroit, he learned to reuse items that others threw away, which became a passion for transforming trash into art. After witnessing his neighborhood split apart by rioting, serving as a soldier, and enrolling in art school, Guyton returns to dilapidated Heidelberg Street. Shapiro richly describes the activism behind much of Guyton's work: 'When trouble still sizzled in one discarded home, Tyree coated it in dots and squares of pink, blue, yellow, and purple, then perched a magenta watchdog on the porch.' Brantley-Newton's vivid compositions, which incorporate paint, newsprint, and photo-collage, honor an artist who created the world he wanted to live in. Ages 6 — 9. (Oct.)"
