What is an Impressionist Picture Book?

Frogs and Kittens, Monet and Degas - Joan Sweeney

Sweeney´s first Impressionist-centered picture book, "Once Upon a Lily Pad: Froggy Love in Monet´s Garden," won the acclaim of many critics. Her effortlessly beautiful follow-up is titled, "Bijou, Bonbon and Beau: The Kittens Who Danced for Degas." In both books, Sweeney opens up a painter´s world through fictional critters who fit themselves into an artist´s life and work. Bijou, Bonbon, and Beau are kittens born in the Paris theater where Degas made his well-known sketches and paintings of dancers. Leslie Wu provides illustrations influenced by the Impressionists in all the best ways, and her kittens are miniature works of art.
