More About This Title Katie and the British Artists
Katie just can't decide what she wants to be when she grows up. Perhaps a trip to the gallery to see five famous paintings by world-renowned British artists might give her some ideas. And can she help the shepherd boy from Constable's The Cornfield round up all those pesky sheep? For almost two decades, the Katie series has been bringing art to life for young children.
James Mayhew is a children's author and illustrator whose books include Can You See a Little Bear, Katie and the Sunflowers, Katie Meets the Impressionists, The Knight Who Took All Day, and Who Wants a Dragon?
