Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When Pigasso met Mootisse, what began as a neighborly overture escalated into a mess. Before you can say paint-by-numbers, the two artists become fierce rivals, calling each other names and ultimately building a fence between them. But when the two painters paint opposite sides of the fence that divides them, they unknowingly create a modern art masterpiece, and learn it is their friendship that is the true work of art.

Synopsis:

Lump, the world-famous artist Pablo Picassoandrsquo;s dog, loves cake. He can never have enough! But when he takes a bite out of a beautiful cake he finds in the garden, he discovers itandrsquo;s not cake at allandmdash;itandrsquo;s made of metalandmdash;and realizes not everything is what it seems. Lump and his friend, the goat Esmeralda, meet other animals in the yard and learn that they are made from surprising things: She-Goat tells how Picasso made her from broken lamps and tin cans, Baboon explains that her head is made of toy cars and metal strips, and Crane shows off her delicate legs made from forks.

This delightful book brings Picassoandrsquo;s villa in Cannes to life and explains how the artist, ever inventive and playful, made sculptures from different materials using different techniques throughout his long career. Readers learn about the joy and freedom sculpture brought to Picassoandrsquo;s life and art.

Nina Laden's wacky illustrations complement this funny story that non only introduces children to two of the world's most extraordinary modern artists, but teaches a very important lesson‐how to creatively resolve a conflict in a most unusual way.
