When Pigasso Met Mootisse
When Pigasso Met Mootisse by Nina Laden.
"An inventive picture book about art and friendship that introduces animal versions of two of the best-known painters in the world (Picasso and Matisse) and shows kids how friction between friends can sometimes result in masterpieces when you work together." - Seira Wilson, Amazon Editor
When Pigasso met Mootisse, what begins as a neighborly overture escalates into a mess. Before you can say paint-by-numbers, the two artists become fierce rivals, calling each other names and ultimately building a fence between them. But when the two painters paint opposite sides of the fence that divides them, they unknowingly create a modern art masterpiece, and learn it is their friendship that is the true work of art.
Nina Laden's wacky illustrations complement this funny story that non only introduces children to two of the world's most extraordinary modern artists, but teaches a very important lesson--how to creatively resolve a conflict in a most unusual way.
