From the mind of Dr. Seuss comes a book to help understand the sometimes puzzling thing we call ART. Welcome to Dr. Seuss's Horse Museum - now open for a canter through art history.

Your tour guide will show you how different artists can look at one thing - like a horse - and have totally different visions. These different visions create ART. And this is a book that canters through the whole of art history, explaining the puzzling and imaginative thing we call 'art'.

With reproductions of over thirty iconic pieces of artwork - from Pablo Picasso to Edouard Manet, Rene Magritte, Susan Rothenberg, Jackson Pollock, and many more. This is an exhibition you won't want to miss!

Based on a newly-discovered manuscript and sketches from Dr. Seuss, and brought to life by acclaimed illustrator Andrew Joyner, this is a thoroughly Seussian exploration of 'art'.

With cameo appearances from beloved Dr. Seuss characters, such as the Cat in the Hat, this playful picture book is totally unique. Ideal for home or classroom use, this book will inspire Seuss fans, artists, and horse lovers - of all ages.

Excellent for a first visit to an art museum and as jumping-off point for young artists seeking creative style. Few names are as recognizable in picture books as Dr. Seuss, and this posthumous offering will have many eager readers. -- Lolly Gepson * Booklist *
