The book tracks the movements of three sneaky mice who explore the wide variety of sculptures at the local museum. The mice notice the many differences in the sculptures, helping readers appreciate distinctions as they compare and contrast right along with these cute little critters. Differences in texture, size, and materials are all highlighted, and distinctions in angles and perspective are also touched upon in the text. The playful mice are inspired by all they see at the museum and end up creating their very own totally unique sculptures.
The illustrations in the book are unusual and quirky. Nancy Wallace uses a special collage method to create her art, and in Look! Look! Look! at Sculpture she has incorporated actual photographs of sculpture, giving the book a sort of three-dimensional look and feel that helps convey the allure of the sculpture arts.
Nancy Wallace is an accomplished author an illustrator of many books including Seeds! Seeds! Seeds!, The Valentine Express, and Alphabet House.
Look! Look! Look! at Sculpture is scheduled for release this April 1st, 2012 from Marshall Cavendish Childrens Books.
