Description

When Pigasso met Mootisse, what begins as a neighborly overture escalates into a mess. Before you can say paint-by-numbers, the two artists become fierce rivals, calling each other names and ultimately building a fence between them. But when the two painters paint opposite sides of the fence that divides them, they unknowingly create a modern art masterpiece, and learn it is their friendship that is the true work of art.

Nina Laden's wacky illustrations complement this funny story that non only introduces children to two of the world's most extraordinary modern artists, but teaches a very important lesson—how to creatively resolve a conflict—in a most unusual way.

    "When Pigasso met Mootisee" was a very enjoyable book. The main idea of this book was to inform readers about the story of Picasso and Matisse. This book provided children the history of how the two famous artists became well known and friends. One of the reasons I enjoyed this book was how the author took a concept and made it relatable to kids by using animals such as pigs and cows. If the story would have been the real Picasso it might not have been so enjoyable for them. Another reason I enjoyed the book was because of the bright, vibrant illustrations. This made it very appealing to the eye. The illustrations included pictures detailed with bright yellow, pink, and green. It also really showcased how Picasso's art was. Lastly, I enjoyed how it also touched on the idea of friendship. In the story, Pigasso and Mootisee get into a fight. They overcome there fight and appreciate one another. This is a great model for children and can lead to a great literature discussion.

    I liked this book, especially the illustrations. I loved how the illustrations surrounding Pigasso were angular like his artistic style, and the illustrations for Mootise were softer like his artistic style. I found myself giggling at the illustrations in the book depicting when Mootise and Pigasso engage in a paint war. I also enjoyed the puns in the book such as "bullheaded" and "pigheaded". The big idea of the story is that we can be friends with people whos views differ from our own if we concentrate on the things we have in common and respect the differences.

    Tired of being surrounded by fans, Pigasso and Mootisse move to a quieter place and become neighbors. The two artists at first are friendly to one another, but they soon become very competitve and critical of each other's work. By building a fence between their house, the pair learn that they miss the other and are able to accept one another becoming life long friends. This book is based off the true story about the famous artists Hemri Matisse and Pablo Picasso.

    This playful text explores the complex friendship of "Pigasso" and "Mootisse," based on the famous modern artists with similar names. Many of the details in the story are based on real events. (Mini biographies about each real artist appear in the back). Children will love the word play ("moosterpiece" and "work of heart") and the amazing, Picasso- and Matisse-like illustrations. This is a masterpiece from Nina Laden (author of my son's first favorite book, "Peek-a-Who"). This would be an excellent book to read with a nonfiction text about Picasso, Matisse, and/or modern art.

    This book has amazing illustrations. These illustrations were created using the same style as the artists they were mimicking would. This gives readers more information about these artists. This story is also a great example of a fantasy, because the author took these two very famous artists and made them into a pig and a cow. This makes it so the book is very fun and engaging.

    This is an excellent fantasy book. It has humor and ties in actual aspects of both the lives of Picasso and Matisse, by incorporating them into farm animals. The characters in this book are nicely rounded and develop throughout this story. This is done by having the animals dislike one another, but after they began to really look at each other's art they realize that they aren't that bad. They just paint in different styles. This book could also be used at a variety of different grade classrooms.
