25th Anniversary Edition
Linnea has been in Paris. And she has
visited the painter Claude Monet’s garden! She
even stood on the same little Japanese bridge that
Monet painted so often in his pictures. In Paris,
Linnea got to see many of the real paintings.
Now she can understand what it means to
be called an Impressionist, and she knows a lot
about Monet’s life in the pink house where he
lived with his eight children.
Twenty-five years after its original publication,
this celebration of the wonder of art is available
once again in an enlarged keepsake edition.
The joy and inspiration Linnea discovers in
Monet’s garden will be eagerly embraced by a
new generation of readers.
