I love this series of books about Katie and her grandmother who visit the people in famous paintings and go on amazing adventures. In this book Katie goes on a voyage of discovery through five Monet Masterpieces as Katie takes art lessons with the master. The books ends with details about all the paintings shared in the book. This book lives up to the reputation of the others in the series.

  2. Katie's picture Show
  3. Katie Meets the Impressionists
  4. Katie and the British Artists
  5. Katie and the Mona Lisa

  1. We love the Katie books too. The one downside is that sometimes pictures are shown as being in the same gallery which in reality are spread across many countries. I had a disappointed child when she found that the picture of the Infanta Margarita (Katie and the Spanish princess) wasn't just around the corner from the portrait of Philip IV.

    1. Good point Sarah. I had not thought of that because we don't often go to the gallery :)

      However the last page in the books do contain a great resource with factual information about each painting. Along the bottom of this page in the acknowledgements he notes where each painting is.

  2. I had no idea this was a series! I will have to get more :)

    1. :) Yes there are a few books. I have updated the post to include links to the others :)
