About the Author

Barbara Lehman has illustrated many books for children, including The Red Book, which was awarded the Caldecott Honor in 2005. Born in Chicago, Barbara attended Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, where she earned a BFA in communication design. A full-time illustrator, Barbara says, "Books and art have always held the strongest attraction for me. I have always felt drawn to 'commercial art' because of its ability to reach many people. I like the idea of being part of the media in a meaningful and thoughtful way, especially with children as the audience." She lives in the Hudson Valley in upstate New York.

Reviews

* "Another mindbending foray into a wordless metafictive narrative. . . . It's a playfully subtle celebration of the possibilities offered by seemingly dry and dusty museums and, like museums, entirely worthy of several lengthy visits." --Kirkus Reviews, starred review

* "Another winning picture book that blurs real and imagined worlds. . . . The sturdiness and clarity of the ink-lined, watercolor-and-gouache art juxtaposes wonderfully with the story's airy world of imagination." --Booklist, starred review * "An equally evocative wordless sequence." --Publishers Weekly, starred review "The payoff will come for those who are willing to make return trips to scan for clues (who else is wearing a medal?)--as well as for those inspired to travel to a real museum as soon as possible." --Horn Book "Lehman is a great miniaturist and copyist. She packs her museum with tiny, lively versions of modern paintings. And her watercolor labyrinths, subtly marked with stains, stamps and folds, have the spirit of Saul Steinberg's stylized drawing of official documents. She is witty, too." --New York Times Book Review
