Summary "Poems, paintings and Paris all come to life in this enchanting picture book biography of Gertrude Stein. This story of imagination and expression introduces young readers to Gertrude and her life partner, Alice B. Toklas, who lived in Paris during a fascinating time in history. Divided into short chapters that chronicle different episodes in Gertrude and Alice's life, this book celebrates two women who were full of daring and creativity at a time when women were encouraged to be wives, not writers."-- Provided by publisher.
