You know, it's a fine age when Andy Warhol is considered accessible to children. How do you make avant-garde artwork not only palatable but appealing to the younger generation? Find out with Wilson author Bonnie Christensen's picture book Fabulous: A Portrait of Andy Warhol, which chronicles the artist's early years growing up as an uncool cat in Pittsburgh, leading to his arrival as a major artist in the 1960s. The bits with the drugs and the weird movies are kinda glossed over, but if you can get kids to appreciate a painting of a soup can, you're halfway to raising 'em right. —Zack Smith
