What is Punk? Is a wonderfully illustrated children’s history of punk rock, from a progressive/idealistic perspective. What Is Punk? is a must-read pop-culture primer for children—an introduction to the punk revolution, recreated in vivid 3-D clay illustrations and told through rhyming couplets.
From London’s Clash and Sex Pistols to the Ramones’ NYC protopunk, from Iggy Pop to the Misfits, this volume depicts some of our culture’s seminal moments and iconic characters. A delightful read for kids and parents alike, illustrated in a truly unique visual style, What Is Punk? lays the groundwork for the next generation of little punks.
My thoughts:This book is great! I love looking at the perfectly detailed clay animated photos. What a great way to teach my child about the energy and hard-edged spirit of punk music that I always enjoyed as a teenager! It is written in a rhyming story that my son, Braxton really enjoys. The book doesn’t really explain exactly what punk is, but indicates that the best way to learn about it is too LISTEN to it!
