Marc knew he was different from other boys. He saw things they didn't see.

A beautiful introduction to the life and work of Marc Chagall

In the imagination of Marc Chagall, all of life was an inspiration for the beautiful and strange pictures he created. He painted people, farm animals, religious symbols, visions, and feelings in a way no other artist had attempted.

With vivid prose and exuberant illustrations this book chronicles the life of Marc Chagall-born to a humble Jewish family in a Russian ghetto-who became one of the most celebrated artists of the twentieth century.
