Overview


On a summer day in Central Park, a boy meets a man named Vincent. He is a painter, and the picture on his old wooden easel shows the park's daffodils in all their yellow splendor. The painting captures the boy's imagination. Soon Vincent and the boy are exploring Manhattan, from Battery Park to Harlem, from Fifth Avenue to Greenwich Village. Vincent paints the city in bright and beautiful colors. Then one day he takes the boy to a museum. He leads him to a painting of a country village. No sooner does the boy recognize the painting as one of Vincent's than his friend disappears. But Vincent has left the boy a gift: the desire to paint a picture. Neil Waldman's special book, featuring stunning Van Gogh-inspired paintings of Manhattan, speaks to that part of a child that knows no limits—the imagination.

Once in a great while, a book comes along that touches the heart, and changes the reader forever. THE STARRY NIGHT is one such book. This is the story of how a child discovers the heart of an artist within him, under the tutelege of Vincent van Gogh. I read it to my kids, and they went straight for the crayons. I can't say enough about it! Now they want to know everything about van Gogh's life.

A beautifully illustrated and imaginative story that touches the soul. An excellent introduction to Van Gogh for children.
