Description
With a text that features real-life figures of Paris and the impressionist movement of the 1870s, historical details, and realistic watercolor illustrations, this book for readers 6 to 10 imagines the inspiration for Claude Monet's series of paintings of steam engines at the Saint-Lazare train station.

"Along with a lively telling of how Monet convinced the station's director to delay departures so he could paint, the thoroughly researched narrative provides an introduction to the impressionist style, emphasizing that it was radically different from the realistic paintings favored at the time. Large, Impressionist-inspired watercolors complement the text, allowing readers to examine individual brush strokes and consider what sets Impressionism apart from other artistic styles. The book's art historical details combined with its vivid illustrations make it an appealing read-aloud."School Library Journal
