Taking a lively, original approach, Alexander Sturgis's narrative explores the message of 12 masterpieces. Teamed with the equally original illustrations of Lauren Child, this makes a fun and highly enjoyable introduction to a fascinating subject. When young Dan finds himself locked inside a museum after closing hours, he discovers a world of art he'd never dreamed possible. An angel steps out of a painting and takes him on an exploratory tour of the great masterpieces - explaining the symbolism of each painting. For the first time, Dan begins to understand the messages of paintings and the stories behind them. It's not long before he too is speaking their language.
