A wonderfully original, thought-provoking and entertaining book inspired by Anthony Browne's work with children in the Tate gallery in London.

‘I was a little boy and I didn't know what to expect. It was my mother's idea - that year for her birthday she wanted us all to go somewhere different. It turned out to be a day that changed my life forever.’

A family reluctantly visits an art gallery but one by one each member is energized by a different picture in the gallery and transported into the imaginative and colourful world of art."

'You have to look closely at this inventive and inspiring book to discover all its riches, and looking closely is its point' - Sunday Times

'Anthony Browne proves again why he is one of the UK's foremost illustrators. Original, challenging and full of the wit and humour that is his trademark.' - The Bookseller

'Browne... has produced another gem. You look at his pictures - whatever age you are - and find references in them beyond the immediate text. His is a most evolved form of storytelling' - Guardian
