Imagine That!: Activities and Adventures in Surrealism
Joyce Raimondo. Watson-Guptill Publications, $13.99 (48pp) ISBN 978-0-8230-2502-2
Nonfiction entries explore the arts, sciences and traditions. The inaugural title in the Art Explorers series, Imagine That!: Activities and Adventures in Surrealism by Joyce Raimondo examines six Surrealist artists (Ren Magritte, Max Ernst and Frida Kahlo, among others) and offers creative ideas for children using variations of the artists' methods. Accessibly designed pages teem with blocks of boldly colored prompts and observations, alongside reproductions of the artists' works and those done by children loosely emulating their techniques. .
