"One day a strange man arrived in Camille's town. He had a straw hat and a yellow beard..." The strange man is the artist Vincent van Gogh, seen through the eyes of a young boy entranced by Vincent's painting. As Camille discovers, not everyone appreciates the genius of his "Sunflower Man." Vincent is forced to leave the town, but his paintings live on, never to be forgotten. An enchanting introduction to the great painter, with reproductions of van Gogh's own work.
