Praise For Masterpiece Mix

"Just as a graphic-novel presentation may ease a young reader's access to the eldritch world of Poe, so art books for children use informality to make fine art accessible to the potential young connoisseur. . . . In the picture book 'Masterpiece Mix', Roxie Munro achieves this effect by setting great paintings amid her own cartoon-style drawing."—The Wall Street Journal
 
"A handsome and satisfying companion to Market Maze."—Kirkus Reviews
 
"This simple story covering the basics of painting and drawing—materials, subject matter, and art history—can be absorbed in a few minutes by preschoolers, but the searching game and the intricacy of the artwork lend themselves to more thorough investigation by older children . . . a versatile introduction to fine art for elementary schoolers."—School Library Journal
