    Review quote
    'A perfect introduction to art for parents and children to enjoy together ... Simple, clear and fun.' The Guardian 'The Art Book For Children draws young readers first into the subject, then deftly into the form, of paintings from the Mona Lisa to Warhol's Marilyn Monroe' The Times 'stylish, and exciting without being silly' Sunday Times Culture 'Stylish, welcoming introduction to art ... The book is bursting with exuberant questions ... and determined to open young eyes and minds.' The Observer
