Henri, Egg Artiste
by Marcus Pfister
Age Range: 6-8
Every Easter professional Easter egg painter Henri decorates eggs for the children. The trouble is that Henri is bored of painting ordinary Easter eggs. After all, he’s an artist, and artist’s create masterpieces – not just boring old eggs! So Henri decides to do something completely different.
Swiss author and illustrator, Marcus Pfister, famous for the ‘Rainbow Fish’ series has created an entertaining journey through art history, from the Renaissance to surrealism and pop art as Henri experiments with different styles and techniques, but always ensuring that they are uniquely his own.
At the back of the book there are details of all the artists of the original pictures that Henri has worked from and children can have lots of fun identifying the egg that goes with each masterpiece.
