Description
A SIMPLE STORY LAYERED WITH MEANING; stunning layered artwork by an acknowledged master.

A wealthy Chinese man dreamt of a painting of his favorite horse. He sought out a man named Homan, known as a great painter of horses and commissioned the portrait. Then he waited…and waited…and waited. As the years passed, his hair grew gray, and he grew furious. What was taking so long? Dennis Haseley’s simple story about the nature of art and the value of time is subtly amplified in stunning layered collages by Caldecott medalist Ed-Young.

Twenty Heartbeats is a 2009 Bank Street - Best Children's Book of the Year.
