School Librarian In my experience good quality books on art directed at young people from about seven or eight upwards are hard to come by. First impressions suggest that the titles in the Look! series are the exception. Good quality reproductions of a variety of artistic styles are accompanied by well laid out pages using clear type faces, small inserts of detail from the main picture with concise and informed commentaries, and for good measure a task for the reader as a follw-up to the main theme. The series certainly deserves consideration for primary and secondary school libraries. School Librarian An uncomplicated introduction to art. Irish Examiner
