In this extraordinary picture book, author Joan Schoettler imparts the life of a remarkable woman, teacher, and artist.

Known as the “Fountain Lady” of San Francisco due to the many fountains she designed, Asawa experimented with unconventional mediums, using lines, space, and wire to create dimensional sculptures. The thorough research of illustrator Traci Van Wagoner is vividly apparent in the dynamic depictions of Asawa and her life that are sure to fascinate and inspire young readers. Ages 6 to 9.
