Book Description

7 July 2005 Katie (Book 1)

Join Katie as five famous Pointillist paintings come alive for her!

On a hot, sunny day, a painting of some bathers in a cool river proves too tempting for Katie, and so she dives straight into the picture! But Katie doesn't just cause a splash - she causes a flood! Paddling with new friends might be fun, but how will Katie stop the water pouring into the gallery?

A wonderful introduction and explanation of the Pointillist art style, featuring five masterpieces from three famous artists:

Bathers at Asnieres by Georges Seurat

Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte by Georges Seurat

Port of Honfleur by Georges Seurat

Woman Hanging up the Washing by Camille Pissarro

Portrait of Felix Feneon by Paul Signac

I bought a copy of this for my two year old niece, and she absolutely adores it. The text is sweet, easy to read aloud, and gave me plenty of opportunity to try out my foreign accents and aristocratic impersonations on her :) It is, however, the beautiful recreations of classic art and the magical events that really delighted her. The water flooding into the gallery, the magician filling the air with rainbows, the wonderful flits into period paintings... My niece loved it.

Be warned though, if you are giving this as a gift, you'd best clear your diary for a few hours afterwards, as this is one book they'll want to go through again and again and again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Educational and fun 26 Feb 2012
My 4 and 6 years old little artist girls simply love these books. We have bought nearly the whole serial. I can only recommend them. They are educational (if you are into art) and fun as well. Beautiful illustration.
