I Spy Transport in Art selected by Lucy Mickleethwait
An interesting concept and a great way to introduce children to well-known pieces of art, Lucy Micklethwait's selections take the reader on a journey through the modern world of art. Apparently, children helped with the selection of the art works. Art works include Batmobile from DC Comics, Kandinsky's Birds and Salvador Dali's La Table Solaire, along with ten others. All have to do with different forms of transport, hence the title of the book. Whilst finding the different modes of transport is no where near as hard as the challenge thrown out in the Where's Wally series, it is indeed a great vehicle for talking to your children or students about art.
