The Fantastic Journey of Pieter Bruegel is both interesting and educational. Each page is full of large illustrations that use lots of bright colors. Overall, I enjoyed this book.

The Fantastic Journey of Pieter Bruegel is a story of the artist Pieter Bruegel as he embarks on his journey to Rome. Each page is dated as if it is a diary entry from Pieter Bruegel himself. The language used is more advanced for a picture book, I believe this read is best suited for fourth and fifth graders. The book
Author Anders C. Shafer did a fantastic job describing the journey of artist Pieter Bruegel from his home in Antwerp to Rome in the 1550’s. For a picture book this is a rather lengthy read; educators may wish to break up it into two sessions if sharing with a group of students. What I love most about this story is how the passion and inspiration that Shafer felt for Bruegel’s work is conveyed beautifully on each page. The illustrations are stunning and he infused much of Bruegel’s art with them.
My 5 year old loved this book when she was taking art lessons.
Anders Shafer's illustrations are wonderful!
