The latest kid's book from NGV is out and it is gorgeous! A companion book for the Degas: A New Vision Exhibition, the book takes a charming look at Degas' life and works in a way accessible even to young children.

A cartoon snail will teach you a little French along the way and a Pigeon in a tutu guides you through Paris, London, New York and New Orleans.

Artwork from the exhibition is displayed in beautiful glossy, full page spreads giving children a perfect introduction to Degas. These are complimented by cartoons illustrating all sorts of things from Degas' interesting life.

Our little ballerina has enjoyed reading this book very much and it has inspired many an artwork.

It would make a lovely gift for someone planning on seeing the exhibition or a perfect souvenir for those who have been already.
