About this book:

In this sequel to the tour de force children's art-history picture book If Picasso Painted a Snowman, Amy Newbold conveys nineteen artists' styles in a few deft words, while Greg Newbold’s chameleon-like artistry shows us Edgar Degas' dinosaur ballerinas, Cassius Coolidge's dinosaurs playing Go Fish, Hokusai's dinosaurs surfing a giant wave, and more.

“Art history with a little smile.” Kirkus Reviews

 

About this book:

A big, brightly colored, playful introduction to various important painters and art movements. “If someone asked you to paint a snowman, you would probably start with three white circles stacked one upon another. Then you would add black dots for eyes, an orange triangle for a nose, and a black dotted smile. But if Pablo Picasso painted a snowman…” From that simple premise flows this delightful, whimsical, educational picture book. At the end, it asks, “What will your snowman look like?” Fun for all ages. Maryland Blue Crab Honor Book 2018 Cybils Award Nominee 2017
