ACTION JACKSON

by | Read by Edward Harris

Children Ages 4-6 • 12 min. • Unabridged • © 2004

This American Library Association Sibert Honor book details the creation of a Jackson Pollack painting. Pollack's studied and careful process incorporates his world experiences--from the big sky and Native American sand painting of his Western boyhood to the beat of his favorite jazz musicians. From the moment the canvas is placed on the floor until the last flick of his unconventional medium, house paint, Jackson moves and dances around his work. Ed Harris's straightforward and unobtrusive narration provides ample opportunity for the listener to appreciate the artist at work. Some painting moments are studied and reflective; others are a frenzy of activity. Harris's tone and pacing mirror each. Gentle jazz provides just the right background.
