Katie's Picture Show

Publisher: Orchard

When Katie visits an art gallery for the first time, it is not at all what she expects. With cream cakes, a friendly tiger in the jungle and lots of interesting people to talk to, Katie discovers that looking at paintings can be a real adventure!

Beautifully illustrated and full of joy and humour, this is the perfect introduction to art for younger children.

Katie's Picture Show has been re-illustrated to celebrate its 25th anniversary along with the other books in James Mayhew's Katie series.
