Description

Katie visits five paintings by Van Gogh, Gauguin and Cezanne! Katie tries to pick the sunflower seeds from the Vincent Van Gogh painting, but when the vase tips over, the flowers go everywhere. Mimi, a little girl from a painting nearby, comes to help Katie, but when Mimi's dog Zazou comes too disaster follows! This imaginative fantasy about a mischievous character is an original and fun way to introduce children to art. A page of notes at the end gives background information on the artists. Includes reproductions of five famous post-Impressionist masterpieces: Sunflowers by Vincent Van Gogh Breton Girls Dancing by Paul Gauguin Cafe Terrace at Night by Vincent Van Gogh Still Life, with Apples and Oranges by Paul Cezanne Tahitian Pastorals by Paul Gauguin

About James Mayhew

His series of Katie books are much-loved and respected as an early introduction to art. 'Ella Bella Ballerina and The Sleeping Beauty' was James' first title featuring the adorable Ella Bella, and has been illustrated using a new delightfully retro art style.
