Synopsis

Chasing Degas by Eva Montanari

Young girls will love this book about a ballerina in Paris. Monsieur Degas likes to paint the students while they practice in ballet class, they've inspired many of his beautiful paintings. But one day he mistakenly leaves his bag of paints in the dance studio and takes a young ballerina's bag instead, which contains her new tutu for the evening's recital! And so the ballerina begins a great chase to find Degas before her big night. While she searches the streets of Paris, the ballerina encounters many other Impressionist painters who are in the process of painting some of their great works. Monet, Renoir, Caillebotte and Cassatt help the ballerina until she is reunited, at last, with Degas. Featuring the original paintings by the Impressionists which inspired this picture book of historical fiction, along with an author's note about Impressionism and this vibrant period in Paris, Chasing Degas will delight young lovers of art and ballet.
