Ella's Trip to the Museum

Overview

Illustrated in full color. On a visit to the museum with her class, Ella discovers what it's like to be in a painting, instead of just looking at it. However, Ella's teacher, Mrs. Jasper, is convinced that Ella is merely goofing off. So Ella demonstrates to the class how to make a statue move, and soon the whole class is dancing with Flora, the goddess of spring...all except Mrs. Jasper. But by this time, nothing can spoil the fun!

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Most museum-goers just stand in front of a painting or a sculpture, but the uninhibited title character of Clayton's debut leaps and spins. Although docent Mrs. Jasper flashes "her worried look" and a guard issues a warning ("No silly-walking in the museum!"), Ella imagines herself dancing with Degas-style ballerinas, friendly neoclassical cupids and a statue of a serene Roman goddess that miraculously hops off its pedestal. When the docent scolds, "I want you to experience the art," Ella responds, "But I am!" Ella's enthusiasm infects her three quiet classmates, who comment benignly through italicized asides"That looks fun!" "Yeah!"and who, when Mrs. Jasper turns her back, finally join in the dance. Clayton aims for a dreamy effect in her gestural watercolors. She draws each scene with loose lines, then adds floaty brushstrokes to make the characters' draped clothing look pillowy-soft. The apple-cheeked children exchange some rather syrupy smiles, but their blissed-out expressions show without a doubt that fine art should transport its viewers. Ages 3-7. (May)
Children's Literature - Kristin R. Harris
Ella and her class visit the art museum. Ella has a special talent for making the artwork come to life and interacting with the dancers, angels or goddesses. This causes some problems for the teacher and museum guard-but all the kids soon catch on. The museum experience is a positive one for all.
School Library Journal
0_PreS-Gr 2Ella falls in love with the art museum the moment she crosses its threshold, feeling "...that almost anything could happen." She is soon entranced by a Degasshe hears the orchestra thundering, is bathed in pink light, and twirls with the ballerinas. Likewise, she rises up and floats with some painted angels. Each time she gets excited, Mrs. Jasper gives her a puzzled, serious, or worried look and tells her to behave, while the security guard reminds her of the rules: "No silly-walking in the museum!" After a statue of a goddess comes to life and teaches Ella "the dance of spring," the girl explains what has happened and her teacher denies the impossible. But when the woman's back is turned, all the children cavort with the statue. The lighthearted story's theme is familiarkids know better than adults that magic is indeed possibleand the watercolor illustrations are cheerful, delicate, and fluid. Unfortunately, while this playful book might inspire a trip to a real museum, the picture it paints is rather rosythe little school group has the whole place to themselves. Also, readers may find that the only parts of the experience they recognize are the urges to dance and the reprimands. At the very least, they will laugh at Mrs. Jasper's general obliviousness and immunity to Flora, the goddess of spring.Vanessa Elder, School Library Journal
