James Mayhew studied at Maidstone College of Art and his first children's book, Katie's Picture Show was published in 1989. It's been firmly in print ever since, recognised universally as the original and best introduction to art for children. Many more titles have followed, and the series sells in museums and galleries all over the world, from the Met in New York, to the Uffizi in Florence, the Louvre in Paris and beyond. He is also the creator of the much-loved Ella Bella Ballerina series, and many other titles. Alongside his work in publishing, James has devised and performed in a hugely successful series of concerts for children, combining live classical music, storytelling and live art. From Peter and the Wolf, to Scheherazade, James has worked internationally with many different orchestras and musicians, creating illustrations in time to music. James grew up in Suffolk but now lives in Hertfordshire.From Booklist:
Illustrated with appealing line-and-wash artwork, this picture book from Mayhew’s Katie series begins when the girl’s grandmother takes her to a gallery featuring Spanish painters. While Grandma snoozes, Katie admires the princess’s dress in Portrait of the Infanta Margarita. Margarita steps down from the picture, swaps clothes with Katie, and together they romp though the gallery, interacting with people in paintings by Velázquez, Goya, and Murillo. The book concludes with information about the artists. Episodic and childlike, the story makes an agreeable vehicle for introducing children to the paintings and bringing their subjects to life, both literally and metaphorically.
