Mr. Owliver's Magic at the Museum
Fine Art by artist Carolyn Bracken - Description: Mr. Owliver loves his job as nightwatchman for the Animaltown Art Museum, partly because he's an owl and is up at night anyway, but mostly because he's proud to protect such beautiful works of art. His friends think he must be lonely, but he has the company of the all subjects in the paintings. One in particular, the lovely Ms. Wren in Auguste Wrenoir's The Loge, is his favorite. One night on his birthday he has a feeling things aren't as they should be. That's when he makes a startling discovery that begins a night full of surprises. This is definitely a birthday Mr. Owliver will never forget! This book is designed to introduce children to some famous masterpieces while entertaining the adult reader with visual puns.
