Children love to pore over detailed illustrations, especially when they contain hidden elements for them to find. This endlessly entertaining book opens up entire historic periods to young readers in double page spreads that are teeming with life and meticulously drawn to teach them about artistic traditions. Each spread represents a moment in history, capturing how art was integrated into daily life and illustrating contemporary styles, tools and mediums. Children will learn about cave paintings and what humans used for light and why they painted so many animals and hunting scenes. They'll find themselves in Ancient Greece, where deities watch over a busy marketplace in front of the Parthenon, a cross-section of a medieval monastery, Leonardo's workshop, and a collection of 19th-century artists painting in nature are just a few more of the examples which take readers through to the present day. Containing additional information including facts and anecdotes that enhance the experience of learning this is a book to turn to again and again. Where's the Artist provides an ingenious and beautifully executed tutorial on art history that will captivate children of any age.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This look-and-find book explores art through the times, highlighting the most prominent styles and artists of each era, from early cave painters to Egyptian hieroglyph carvers to members of a Bauhaus art school. The text is minimal throughout with one question displayed on each page, eliciting a search or conversation about the illustrations . . . The main event is the art itself, in which von Sperber cobbles together characters and details from famous works of such artists as Leonardo da Vinci, van Gogh, Kandinsky, Warhol, and more. Hugely important is the back matter, which supplies information on the art and creators and points out the factual details included in each two-page spread . . . It's an easy-to-use and interactive way to expose students to recognized masters and prompt further musings of how their works are snap-shots of their times. -Booklist
