Reviews

Appealing and imaginative mini-introduction to Art History
Bournemouth Daily Echo
Katie is engaging, mischievous, adventurous and playful ... a great book to read aloud
The Bookbag
The illustrations are mini-masterpieces and bring the story to life beautifully
Families (Bristol)
The formula for Katie's entry into the world of each painting is never forced and the author manages to maintain a balance between pastiche ad personal visual language through a genuine empathy with the formal qualities of the paintings
Books For Keeps
A fantastic read with fabulous illustrations
