Praise for Just Being Dalí:

"This paean to the avant-garde will resonate with those who march to their own drumbeats." —Booklist

"A buoyant, kid-friendly distillation of Salvador Dalí’s life and art." —Kirkus Reviews

"The irrepressible Dalí was as much a phenomenon as an artist, and this picture book biography wisely depicts him as both . . . Helquist’s familiar style of measured exuberance suits its subject well . . . An artist who focused on garnering attention and exploring absurdity has innate kid appeal." —The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"[Helquist's] colorful illustrations are playful and detailed . . . Engaging and imaginative." —School Library Journal

"Entertaining . . . In swirling lines and jewel-like colors, Helquist’s oil on paper illustrations realistically depict Dalí’s carnivalesque world." —Publishers Weekly

"Appropriately flamboyant." —The Horn Book
