Mr. Owliver's Magic at the Museum is an absolutely delightful picture book, which is written and illustrated by Carolyn Bracken.
As an owl who stays up all night, Mr. Owliver works as the night watchman at the Animaltown Art Museum. He enjoys viewing the art, until one evening, Mr. Owliver discovers an unusual occurrence with the paintings.
Within forty pages, this children's book spotlights classic works of art and the importance of friendship. Throughout the book, artistic masterpieces are revised to depict various animals, yet there's a section listing the original artists, their artwork, and additional details. Also, an Art History Timeline is included.
Mr. Owliver's Magic at the Museum is an enjoyable easy-to-read picture book, and it's geared toward young children, particularly preschoolers to second graders.
Note: I received this book from NetGalley, which is a program designed for bloggers to write book reviews in exchange for books, yet the opinions expressed in this review are my own.
