If Monet Painted a Monster by Amy and Greg Newbold is a whimsical picture book that imagines how 16 famous artists, from Frida Kahlo to James Whistler, might have painted a monster. The text is fun and the artwork amazing. I loved the entire book! Here are just two of my favorite illustrations:
(A play on Edward Hopper's Nighthawks...
(...and M.C. Escher.)
Now don't you want to buy the book and see the rest?
Their other picture books, If Picasso Painted a Snowman and If da Vinci Painted a Dinosaur are equally amazing. If you haven't already seen them, be sure to check them out. They're awesome!
