Press reviews

“Learn about art Usborne-Style with plenty of novelty elements and step-by-step descriptions. It’s arranged by themes with cartoon illustrations and lots of flaps to bring famous pictures to life.”
“...a fantastic, interactive flap book that provides an ideal first window into the techniques used by the great painters and the hidden meanings behind their most famous works of art. Ideal for sharing with a grown up but also capable of being read and understood by a child, this book looks at traditional and modern art, art materials, the use of colour, lines and light and how to become an art detective. Also ideal for any grown up who doesn’t know their Monet from their Manet.”
