Through annotated illustrations, journals, maps, and dreamscapes, Peter Sis shows what life was like for a child who loved to draw, proudly wore the red scarf of a Young Pioneer, stood guard at the giant statue of Stalin, and believed whatever he was told to believe. But adolescence brought questions. Cracks began to appear in the Iron Curtain, and news from the West slowly filtered into the country. Sis learned about beat poetry, rock 'n' roll, blue jeans, and Coca-Cola. He let his hair grow long, secretly read banned books, and joined a rock band. Then came the Prague Spring of 1968, and for a teenager who wanted to see the world and meet the Beatles, this was a magical time. It was short-lived, however, brought to a sudden and brutal end by the Soviet-led invasion. But this brief flowering had provided a glimpse of new possibilities-creativity could be discouraged but not easily killed.

A brief history of children's book publishing in the U.S. is provided for context. The works and writings of author/artists Maurice Sendak and Peter Sis are discussed since both authors have stated that their later works, while exploring childhood themes, are intended for adults. The paper concludes that their works are not artists books; these works are hybrids and deserve recognition as a new form of art11ocn436621846mix1.00Sís, PeterPeter Sis CollectionThe collection contains a holiday card, and dummies for 3 titles11ocn231686744visu19980.47Sis, Peter11ocn289330900book20070.06Sís, PeterMúr : ako som vyrastal za železnou oponouJuvenile worksBiography01ocn439613884comPeter SisBiographyThis Web site invites visitors to come and explore the life and works of Peter Sis, an internationally acclaimed illustrator, author, and filmmaker.
