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.
