The book combines storytelling with full-color reproductions of 30 van Gogh paintings. Young readers will appreciate his art in a deeper way, discover details of van Gogh's life, and learn how siblings achieve a shared goal.

"Van Gogh and a fox make art more fun... It's not a long or hard book to read. But the colorful paintings jump off the pages and will give you a lot to think about.... Macaluso includes information on each of the paintings in the book.... [He] wants to share the beauty of the art world with all kids. And even if they don't admit it right away, it's cool. Very cool."
- Marylou Tousignant, The Washington Post, KidsPost
