Katie and the Bathers Summary

Katie and the Bathers by James Mayhew

Join Katie as five famous Pointillist paintings come alive for her!

On a hot, sunny day, a painting of some bathers in a cool river proves too tempting for Katie, and so she dives straight into the picture! But Katie doesn't just cause a splash - she causes a flood! Paddling with new friends might be fun, but how will Katie stop the water pouring into the gallery?

A wonderful introduction and explanation of the Pointillist art style, featuring five masterpieces from three famous artists:
Bathers at Asnieres by Georges Seurat
Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte by Georges Seurat
Port of Honfleur by Georges Seurat
Woman Hanging up the Washing by Camille Pissarro
Portrait of Felix Feneon by Paul Signac

About James Mayhew

James Mayhew studied at Maidstone College of Art and his first children's book, Katie's Picture Show was published in 1989. It's been firmly in print ever since, recognised universally as the original and best introduction to art for children. Many more titles have followed, and the series sells in museums and galleries all over the world, from the Met in New York, to the Uffizi in Florence, the Louvre in Paris and beyond. He is also the creator of the much-loved Ella Bella Ballerina series, and many other titles. Alongside his work in publishing, James has devised and performed in a hugely successful series of concerts for children, combining live classical music, storytelling and live art. From Peter and the Wolf, to Scheherazade, James has worked internationally with many different orchestras and musicians, creating illustrations in time to music. James grew up in Suffolk but now lives in Hertfordshire.
