Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
The unique vision of the world as experienced by a variety of modern artists is celebrated in this charming book. Beautifully reproduced paintings illustrate the particular ways in which Georgia O'Keefe saw flowers, Piet Mondrian saw squares, Paul Klee saw fish and Vincent van Gogh saw stars. A simple rhyming text emphasizes the unique vision of each of the sixteen featured artists and closes with a statement validating the individual way each reader sees the world. A list of the paintings and biographical notes about the artists makes this a good introduction to the world of fine art. 2002, Millbrook Press, $23.90 and $9.95. Ages All.

I bought this in hardcover as a gift for my daughter's very special art teacher. I know she will love it, as it contains beautiful reproductions from some of the world's best artists. However, I think I was expecting a little bit more for the price. The book is a disappointing 8" by 10" in size (approximately), and contains reproductions of just 16 paintings. I guess I was thinking it would be a little grander, based on the price. If I didn't already know the teacher really wanted the hardcover, I would have definitely bought the softcover.
