    schema:description "Stories come to life from four famous paintings: Renoir's The Umbrellas, Klee's The Twittering Machine, Van gogh's The Starry Night, and Rousseau's Tiger in a Tropical Storm (Surprised!)." With magnificent illustrations, this unique account introduces children to art through four famous paintings: Paul Klee's Twittering Machine, Pierre-Auguste Renoir's The Umbrellas, Henri Rousseau's Tiger in the Tropical Storm (Surprised!), and Vincent Van Gogh's The Starry Night. Young imaginations explore these well-known pieces through creative storytelling and eye-catching images. From the sounds of Klee's machines and Renoir's children at play to the movement of Van Gogh's stars and Rousseau's prowling jungle tigers, the illustrations and story suggestions unfold with visual, verbal, and dramatic effect. This ideal art literacy tool invites children to take up their own adventures and concludes with four new paintings by the same artists."@en ;
