From Booklist

Over the past three decades, Micklethwait, the creator of both the I Spy and A First Art Book series, has introduced children to famous artworks with a creative, interactive approach. In this title, she combines familiar techniques that fold a hunt-and-find game into a survey of such diverse artworks as Marc Chagall’s dreamy 1911 painting I and the Village and an amazingly intricate 1590s battle scene from the Mughal Empire text The Akbarnama. Intriguing close-ups pulled from each artwork appear across from a crisp reproduction of the full image, inviting kids to place the detail within the picture and notice other details along the way, and short biographies of the artists appear next to their work. Additional activities—inventing conversations between figures in a painting, for example—are included on each spread and in an extensive, appended section, offering even more opportunities for classroom activities or discussion. Once again, Micklethwait delivers an eye-catching, entertaining invitation to spend time with art—looking, thinking, feeling, and having fun along the way. Grades K-4. --Gillian Engberg


A new book from Lucy Micklethwait is always an event and it is amazing how she manages to find yet another way of looking at pictures to engage the young reader. --School Librarian

Gets us looking and the thinking aspect is designed to be initiated by a number of questions relating each painting. --Books for Keeps
