Anton y Los Dragones

Fibben Hald, Author, Annika Holm, Author Serres $15.05 (42p) ISBN 978-84-95040-91-6
Gr 3-5-This book introduces the works of Anton Gaudi through a fictionalized narrative. In it, a young boy (who is coincidentally named Anton) and his father tour the city of Barcelona to see the Casa Batll , the cathedral of the Sagrada Familia, the Parque G ell, and other famous works of this inventive and creative artist. Anton's father points out how Gaudi used colors and shapes to create the gothic-inspired designs as well as the fusion of surrealistic and organic elements. Although the book is a good tool to use in art appreciation lessons, it gives very little of the factual information that many public libraries might find more useful. Since the plot is based upon touring a city and seeing certain sights, the book's movement, as a narrative, is rather slow. Although the illustrations are vivid and rich, they unfortunately tend to distract rather than inform readers. Joel Bangilan, Houston P.L.
