Today, our superlative library page, Nancy M., pointed out a lovely new picture book, "The Magical Garden of Claude Monet" by Laurence Anholt. Julie and her dog, Louey, wander into a beautiful garden and are taken on a tour by it's "gardener" (Monet). Filled with Anholt's own lovely illustrations and faithful reproductions of Monet's classic works, this book is a feast for the eyes as well as a charming story. This is one in a series of books by Laurence Anholt featuring famous artists. Turns out Mr. Anholt is quite a prolific author and he and his author wife have a GREAT website (this is a clickable link). It is definitely worth a visit.
