Synopsis

Katie and the Bathers by James Mayhew

Join Katie as she steps into some of the most famous paintings in the world for an exciting art adventure! On a hot, sunny day, a painting of some bathers in a cool river proves too tempting for Katie, and so she dives straight into the picture! But Katie doesn't just cause a splash - she causes a flood! Paddling with new friends might be fun, but how will Katie stop the water pouring into the gallery? 'A wonderful way to engage children with art. A brilliant combination of education and storytelling' - Parents in Touch (Katie's Picture Show) This first introduction to Pointillism features five great masterpieces: Bathers at Asnieres, Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte and Port of Honfleur by Georges Seurat, Woman Hanging up the Washing by Camille Pissarro and Portrait of Felix Feneon by Paul Signac.
