Join a butterfly on a magical tour of art history through the ages. When she is jostled from the Flemish painting in which she’s lived for over 300 years, she must find her way back. Another butterfly named Brimstone has suffered a similar fate and they work together, investigating the museum’s galleries, flying past and entering masterpieces by Tissot, Picasso, Matisse, and Pollack to eventually find their own still life. Beautifully conceived and executed, this original and engaging book includes Belle’s journal, which provides details on each painting the duo encounters. Ages nine to thirteeen.
