When Pigasso Met Mootisseby Nina Laden
When Pigasso met Mootisse, what begins as a neighborly overture escalates into a mess. Before you can say paint-by-numbers, the two artists become fierce rivals, calling each other names and ultimately building a fence between them. But when the two painters paint opposite sides of the fence that divides them, they unknowingly create a modern art masterpiece, and learn it is their friendship that is the true work of art.
Nina Laden's wacky illustrations complement this funny story that non only introduces children to two of the world's most extraordinary modern artists, but teaches a very important lesson‐how to creatively resolve a conflictin a most unusual way.

My first grade daughter just loved this book. Able to read herself. She just learned about art and famous artist, so she found the book very enjoyable.
This hilarious book is great for children. It's full of brightly colored wild pictures and humor for adult and children alike.
The story and art are wonderful -- illustrations capture Picasso's and Matisse's styles and the storyline is based in history. Fun for children and introduces them to art and has a message about tolerance too.
