It is beautifully produced, so should do well. Bookseller The author of the popular 'I Spy' series offers an unsual take on fine art, designed to sharpen your kids' observational skills. Artists & Illustrators Sets a satisfying challenge for the young reader. This is a beautiful, informative and fun book for art lovers of any age. Irish Examiner The range of the 10 pictures is broad, covering a mixture of periods, styles and cultures. 'In the Picture' is well-conceived and well-presented, colourful but uncluttered.

It would make a good present, look at home in any school or public libary, and may well prove a useful springboard for craft activites at KS2 or thereabouts. A new book from Lucy Micklethwait is always an event and it is amazing how she manages to find yet another way of looking at picures to engage the young reader.
