Gatsby’s Grand Adventure: Auguste Renoir: The Apple seller by Barbara Cairns and art by Eugene Ruble.
About the Book: Gatsby, the art gallery cat, jumps into famous paintings at night. When he remembers to jump back out before sunrise, everything is fine. But sometimes, Gatsby forgets. That’s when strange things happen. Children will learn about Renoir and “The Apple Seller” through this adventure of a mischievous cat.
My Review: Gatsby loves exploring famous paintings at night by jumping into the paintings. One night Gatsby decided to jump into the Apple Seller painted by Pierre Auguste Renoir. He was looking forward to playing with the little girls in the painting. So he leap into the painting and climbed into the lap of one of the girls who stroked his head. But Jasper the dog came around and chased Gatsby away. With the help of the apple seller and the girls they were able to chase Jasper away from Gatsby who saw his chance to run and leap back into the painting. As he leap back into the gallery a ray of sunshine shimmered on the gallery floor. It was daytime and the Renoir painting is a mess. He must wait till night fall to make sure everyone is back in place then leap out to save the painting.
A story of adventure, humor and art history the children will enjoy reading.
