Linnea in Monet’s Garden by Christina Bjork and Lena Andersen

From Publisher’s Weekly: “Linnea, a fresh-faced European girl with a mop of black hair and a white smock, gives a solid lesson in art history in the gentlest way, through a first-person account. Her story is like a scrapbook, reliving a trip she took to Paris and Giverny to learn about Monet's water-lily paintings. Airy, light-filled watercolors showing Linnea in Monet's environment are juxtaposed with period photographs of the artist and reproductions of the paintings themselves. The focus is always on the specific. Monet's brushstrokes are examined (Linnea terms them "splotchy"). A section is devoted to expressionism: "Even stone walls could shimmer sometimes." Also included are Monet's biography, a family tree and a brief guide to Paris. But, it is the sense of being there, and Linnea's own enthusiasm, that carries the book.” Ages 7-up. Copyright 1987 Reed Business Information, Inc.

Set of two books: The Original Picture Puzzle: Can You Spot the Differences? plus The Ultimate Picture Puzzle: Can You Spot the Differences?

From an Amazon review: “For the most part the puzzles involve two pictures of the same thing, with the second picture having a number of changes from the first picture. The changes can range from simple things like a person added to the picture to hard to spot things like a shirt being a different color. There are also several "cut up puzzles" in which the editors took a photo, cut it into 4, 6, 12 or 18 pieces, rearranged the pieces, numbered them, and you have to figure out the correct order of the pieces to solve the puzzle. There are also some puzzles with six pictures, five of which are identical and you have to find the one that is different.”

These are from Life Magazine and sell for $10.99 and $11.99 respectively. They are good at stretching the brain in a fun way. Paperbacks in very good condition; asking for $8.00ppd (within the US) for the set.
