Katie Meets the Impressionists (Scholastic Bookshelf)by James Mayhew
Synopses & Reviews
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
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.
