  • 2021 Junior Library Guild Selection
  • 2021 Original Art Exhibition Selection

A picture book biography about an ordinary New York City couple and their extraordinary collection of art.


"Lyrical, energetic text and memorable, innovative illustrations (including a particularly dramatic double gatefold) capture the Vogels’ love of art and the artists of New York’s SoHo community, show how Dorothy and Herbert became mentors and hosts, and include interesting details. Overall, this is a warm and thoughtful depiction of the two collectors as well as an engaging introduction to the world of modern art." --Kirkus Review
