Synopsis

Where is the Frog? A Children's Book Inspired by Claude Monet by Geraldine Elschner

When Antoinette, a comely young frog, learns that a famous artist is searching for beautiful flowers to paint, she becomes determined to get into the picture. But once the portrait is painted, it disappears - perhaps forever. This delightfully humorous mystery is accompanied by colourful illustrations that recall Monet's paintings of the pond near his home in Giverny. The final pages of the book feature reproductions of eight of Monet's water lily paintings. As children follow Antoinette's antics on a summer evening in France, they will become entranced by the pond, the painter, the light and beauty of Monet's world.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
