Product description

Julie lives in Paris, but she longs to walk in a beautiful country garden. When her mother takes her on a visit to rural Giverny, Julie discovers a beautiful garden and befriends the man she believes is the gardener. In fact, he is the garden 's owner, the immortal artist Claude Monet. This is a title in Barron 's " Anholt 's Artists Books for Children " series, in which author and illustrator Laurence Anholt recalls memorable and sometimes amusing moments when the lives of the artists were touched by children. Anholt 's fine illustrations appear on every page and include reproductions of works by the artists.

(back cover) Claude Monet When Julie creeps through a hole in a tall gate and enters a mysterious garden, she meets an old man tending the flowers. The gentle gardener turns out to be the great artist, Claude Monet, and together they explore his magical world. Monet and Julie wander across the Japanese bridge, around the house and studios, and they float through water gardens where lilies sparkle as bright as stars. Complete with reproductions of Monet 's work and a fold-out panorama of his water lily pond, this is another inspirational story from Laurence Anholt 's best-selling series, celebrating some of the world 's greatest artists and the real children who knew them.
