Manser is a Swiss self-taught artist who worked as a confectioner / baker, painting in his spare time. His paintings of memories of life on the farm in the Alpine countryside of Switzerland came to the attention of experts on primitive and naive folk art. His 1985 picture book 'Little Albert' was a recreation of his Appenzeller boyhood. 'Barbara' makes reference to that book. Set in the present, it tells the story of a little girl's summertime vacation in the Alps. She owns and loves the 'Little Albert' book and can't wait to compare the story to real experience. Manser's illustrations are teeming with vivid, colorful details of Swiss mountain country life. The busy citizens herd and milk goats, make cheese, go hiking, dance, play music, build bonfires, and play in summer snow. The text is derived from informal conversations with the artist. For ages ca. 3-up.
