    Bill Cunningham died in 2016, at the age of 87. He was a society photographer who was much more interested in the clothing his subjects wore than in the subjects themselves. He was famous for traveling around New York City on a bicycle - year round - and went through 30 or so bikes during his years as a roving photographer. And he was known as a New York Times treasure as his pictures and text highlighted the best of city fashion. "Polka Dot Parade", text by Deborah Blumenthal and art by Masha D' Bill Cunningham died in 2016, at the age of 87. He was a society photographer who was much more interested in the clothing his subjects wore than in the subjects themselves. He was famous for traveling around New York City on a bicycle - year round - and went through 30 or so bikes during his years as a roving photographer. And he was known as a New York Times treasure as his pictures and text highlighted the best of city fashion. "Polka Dot Parade", text by Deborah Blumenthal and art by Masha D'Yans, is a child's book about Bill Cunningham. his life, and his work. (For adults who want to know more Cunningham, his memoir-of-sorts, "Fashion Climbing: A Memoir with Photographs", was recently published). This book is a child's book with an adult subject. I don't think too many 4-8 year old knew who Bill Cunningham was, but the superb text and artwork will interest a savvy child who is into fashion. I bought the book for my 5-1/2 year old granddaughter who I think will be interested in Bill Cunningham and his way of riding around the city on a bike and trying to find "interesting" people to photograph. She - and her younger sister - are very much into clothes and what they wear on a daily basis. Both are into accessories and both "vogue", without knowing what they're doing. They also love having their pictures taken. So, I'm hoping this book with the beautiful art and words will interest her.

    This fun biography opens with these lines: "'He who seeks beauty will find it," Bill said. And he did." The author and illustrator do a wonderful job sharing Bill's talent for finding beauty and capturing it with the camera. A real inspiration for aspiring photographers, both young and old. Love it!

    Liked the real life quotes that were integrated throughout the book. I didn't really know anything about Bill Cunningham or his life before this book either!

    Fun and fanciful illustrations. Good biographical info--not in a childish, poetic style. Inspiring.

    Interesting enough story of Cunningham. But I don't see the appeal for children.
