Camille and the Sunflowers
Publisher: Frances Lincoln
Focusing on a short period in Vincent Van Gogh's life, this story is told through the eyes of Camille, the postmaster's son.
His family befriends the artist and Vincent paints their portraits. Not only do we learn about Van Gogh's paintings, but we also get an insight into the position of an ‘outsider’ in society.
The story covers themes of teasing and bullying by children and adults. A short biography of the artist is included.
