What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

There is no single masterpiece in art galleries or with people–we’re all works of art in our own special way! Our skin tones might all vary; we’re every shade and hue. Some people think we look surreal, and frankly, yes, we do! But we can make you tilt your head, and see the world anew. Pairing bright and engaging illustrations with relatable rhymes, this beautiful hardbound book celebrates diversity while teaching kids about different styles of art: from prehistoric cave art to surrealism, cubism, pop art, and contemporary art. Includes an appendix that provides brief descriptions of different art styles along with mentions of their most significant works and practitioners to encourage further exploration, including: Stonehenge the bust of Nefertiti Leonardo da Vinci Henri Matisse Joan Miró Rene Magritte Roy Lichtenstein Pauline Boty Rachel Whiteread Steve McQueen Mark Sperring works as a children’s bookseller in Bristol, England. He’s the author of the children’s picture books The Naughty Naughty Baddies, I’ll Love You Always, The Shape of My Heart, and How Many Sleeps Till Christmas. Rose Blake has an MA in communication art from the Royal College of Art. She’s done illustration work for a variety of clients, including Disney, the Victoria & Albert Museum of Childhood, and Cartoon Network.
