"A clever, beautifully realized introduction to the world of art." - Named as a TOP 10 Youth Art Book by Booklist "This book helps adults and children to develop the skills and vocabulary for looking at, talking about, and enjoying art together. Ten mice tour a variety of thematic galleries, e.g., "Portraits," "Landscapes," "Still Lifes," and "Fantastic Creatures." On the walls are simplified renditions of famous masterpieces and short notes on the theme or genre. Printed on white borders below are engaging questions ("What are your favorite colors in these paintings? What shapes can you find?") and commentary from the mice. Wellington's age-appropriate questions and playful approach to art work both as model and motivation for visiting a museum"

"Engaging and instructive... a trip as enjoyable for the knowledgable adult as for the child...this book is warm and charming."
