    DescriptionOnce a year, the dogs in the paintings in London's National Gallery have an exciting night out. For a few hours, they escape their gilded frames and are free to run up and down the grand staircases, chase each other round the marble halls, and explore the other exhibits. But four of the dogs overindulge and sleepily climb back into the wrong paintings. When the mix-up is discovered, the museum's popularity soars! This playful story, with superb illustrations by Alan Curless and lovely reproductions of National Gallery paintings, provides young children with a charming introduction to fine art.

    Review quote
    The action is fast moving and children will become quickly involved in the humour of the story... the illustrations are as comical as the tale itself. School Library Journal A gentle introduction to paintings for five to seven year olds who will enjoy finding out what mayhem and consternation ensue when the dogs in the picture take a midnight holiday - and return in the morning to the wrong paintings. Times Get to know Meredith Hooper as both a storyteller and a master of non-fiction picture books for the very young - a rare combination. A perfect introduction to museum visits (and an ideal souvenir to return home to) - and great fun. The Ultimate First Book Guide
