Read full description of the books Self Portrait, Trina Schart Hyman:
Hyman is one of my favorite illustrators so I was thrilled when I got to the H's in weeding J bios and discovered that we had an autobiography by her! Of course it has tons of lovely illustrations. She was fascinated with the story of Little Red Riding Hood as a small child and reenacted the story daily for about a year or so. She always had a great love of fairy tales which certainly shows in her work. I had not known she was involved with the Cricket magazine when it started. I found the book fascinating although, as an adult, there were subjects I wished she had covered that likely were not appropriate for a child's book. Oh well. That is expecting too much and cannot be construed as a criticism of the book. What the book covered was interesting. It was pretty short on dates. It starts by saying 42 (I THINK) years ago I was born. Well, that is of no help until you check the copyright and do a bit of math. On the other hand you do get a real feel for what the artist is like as a person. She loves having a lot of people around her. She loves cats and dogs. She seems to prefer a cluttered place filled with activity to a sterile place with no one around. I did enjoy the book. Realistically this is probably more like 3 stars in many ways, but Hyman is NEVER only three stars!
