The poems in this collection have been written specifically for pupils aged seven to 13. Each one was written in response to a famous painting, and the paintings and poems are paired in the book. Pupils are therefore introduced to the worlds of poetry and art through active reading and viewing. Activities aim to draw the pupils into creative and critical discussion. Among the artists featured are Dali, Degas, Rembrandt, Hogarth, Picasso, Whistler and Kandinsky, and poets include U.A. Fanthorpe, Charles Causley, Carol Anne Duffy, Alan Brownjohn and James Berry.
