Katie and the British Artists
Katie's ninth adventure, now in paper, focuses on much-loved paintings from Turner, Gainsborough, Constable, and Stubbs.
Katie just can't decide what she wants to be when she grows up. Perhaps a trip to the gallery to see five famous paintings by world-renowned British artists might give her some ideas. And can she help the shepherd boy from Constable's The Cornfield round up all those pesky sheep?
Katie is a young girl who goes to the art museum with her grandmother. While there, Katie discovers she can jump into the paintings and become part of the scenes depicted! As she moves between paintings, she interacts with the people inside, giving readers an introduction to some of the world's greatest works of art. The works featured are full color reproductions, and the back of the book holds either additional information about the works of art or a suggested art activity. 32 pgs, pb. ~ Lisa
