Katie Meets the Impressionists (Scholastic Bookshelf) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Katie's trip to the museum to see Impressionist art leads to a magical journey through the actual paintings. In paperback for the first time.

"This British import pays joyful homage to the world of the Impressionists. When Katie and her grandmother visit an art museum to celebrate the elder's birthday, the girl wanders into a gallery where she admires Claude Monet's The Luncheon.... With a blink of her eyes, Katie is magically transported into the painting... Lovely watercolors emulate the style of the Impressionists... Not only does this delightful fantasy succeed as art education, but it's a charming story as well." --School Library Journal

Synopsis:

On a visit to the museum for her birthday, Katie climbs into five Impressionist paintings and has wonderful adventures. This delightful fantasy exposes young ones to the works of famous painters. Full color.

About the Author

James Mayhew was born in Stamford, England and graduated from the Maidstone College of Art in 1987, with first class honors. He is a prolific and renowned illustrator who hopes to peak young childrens interest in music and art. He is enthusiastic about his subjects and this passion is apparent in his work.

Mayhews first childrens book was Katies Picture Show. He developed this subject into a successful childrens series about a young museumgoer who is able to step into paintings and learn about the artists and their eras. Other titles in this series are Katie and Mona Lisa, Katie and the Sunflowers, and Katie Meets the Impressionists. His other books include The Secret Garden, which Kirkus Reviews called “a breathtaking…masterful homage.” He has also illustrated titles for several writers including Elisabeth Beresford and Joyce Dunbar.

In 1994, Mayhew received the New York Times Book Award for his illustrations in The Boy and the Cloth of Dreams. He has sold his artwork worldwide and exhibited it throughout Hertfordshire, in London, Cambridge, Paris and New York.
