Reach for the stars with Katie as she explores five Van Gogh masterpieces!

The stars in Vincent van Gogh's painting are so beautiful that Katie can't resist reaching in and taking one. But what will she do when all the other stars come tumbling out of the painting, too? Will Katie be able to catch the stars before the gallery guard notices they've floated away?

Features five Van Gogh masterpieces: The Starry Night; Noon; Vincent's Chair; Fishing Boats on the Beach; The Olive Grove.

James Mayhew created Katie as a way to make art accessible to all children. 2014 will be the 25th anniversary of the very first Katie title, Katie's Picture Show. He has been bringing art to life for over twenty years and is a much-loved author/illustrator with a broad and loyal fanbase.
