This exuberant biography of the late artist Keith Haring, written by his sister, introduces him as a bespectacled boy who doodled on his tests, much to the chagrin of his teachers. Harings feverish commitment to drawing continued into adulthood, when the unconventional surfaces he drew on (on walls, on sidewalks, and on paper that he hung on lampposts) and his disinterest in making money from his art raised eyebrows. Neubecker (I Won a What?) combines images of Harings work (all identified in a closing spread) with his own punchy cartooning, which dovetails perfectly with the effervescent energy that characterized Harings imagery. A moving authors note and additional biographical information close out this sensitive tribute. Ages 58. Authors agent: Adriana Dominguez, Full Circle Literary. Illustrators agent: Linda Pratt, Wernick & Pratt. (Feb.)
