Gallery Ghost

Gallery Ghost: Find the Ghost Who Paints the Most!

Night At The Museum: Ghost story, interactive art book takes kids on spooky night-time gallery adventures

PALO ALTO, Calif., June 2008 -- What kid wouldn’t love a book that comes with a magnifying glass and a challenge to solve a spooky night-time mystery? And what parent wouldn’t love the chance for their kids to learn about the great masters while having fun?

"Gallery Ghost" by Anna Nilsen succeeds in satisfying kids and parents alike with this beautiful book, which won the Gold Award for Children’s Interactive at the 12th annual Independent Publisher Book Awards earlier this year.

Each night at the museum, the ghosts of 24 famous artists come out to play -- sneaking details from their paintings onto other artists’ pictures. Armed with a magnifying glass and a talley sheet, children are charged with finding out which artist is making the most changes by examining each masterpiece and comparing it to the original.

This museum-quality book contains split pages that allow kids to flip between paintings to compare and contrast the details. Along the way they learn about the styles and techniques of the great masters, including Gauguin, Klee, Homer, Renoir, Manet, Cassatt and more. The paintings in the book appear courtesy of the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., and are accompanied by Richard Salsa’s delightful illustrations and Betsy Franco’s clever poems that help bring the artists to life.

About the author: Anna Nilsen has created more than 50 children’s books and games, including "Art Fraud Detective", for which she has won numerous awards. She lives in Oxford, England.
