"The clever typography of the cover and the colorful illustrations on every page certainly make Meet the Artist David Hockney appealing for young audiences, whilst the neat little introduction to Hockney’s life and career sets things up nicely, reminding any would-be painters that they need only three things to succeed: their hand, their eyes and their heart." — Philip Ellis, Kids in Museums
