"In this mysterious and intriguing tale, a group of animals introduces children to the world of art through the analysis of a painting. The animals have gathered to celebrate the arrival of a work of art, but while they are gone, the painting is stolen. As they search for the culprit and attempt to recover the missing painting, the delightful tale unfolds, allowing young readers to investigate and form their own theories about art," - Barnes and Noble.
