About the Author

James created his first Katie book 'Katie's Picture Show' over twenty years ago as a way to share his enthusiasm for art with children. His series of Katie books are much-loved and respected as an early introduction to art. 'Ella Bella Ballerina and The Sleeping Beauty' was James' first title featuring the adorable Ella Bella, and has been illustrated using a new delightfully retro art style. James lives in Letchworth, Hertfordshire with his wife and son.

So wonderful Sept. 17 2009
By Tina - Published on
Format: Paperback
As soon as I saw this book, I fell in love with it. It is absolutely beautiful - the illustrations are wonderful and the storyline is adorable.

I sat down with my little niece and we read through the book as a bedtime story - twice.

Katie and the Spanish Princess is a sweet story about Katie is going to celebrate her birthday - but she needs a fancy dress! where better to be inspired than visiting an art gallery where Katie will get to explore and live in 5 paintings.

Not only is the story extremely clever, it is also educational (although I did not mention that to my niece).

As I mentioned the illustrations are beautiful and it makes you want to slowly turn the pages and explore each illustration in great detail.

I loved, loved this book.

Wonderful way to learn about art. Nov. 6 2010
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
My four-year-old loves the Katie books. She is learning to recognize paintings, but feels like she is just enjoying a favorite story. I'm not a flash card mamma, but I want my kids to have a basic knowledge of classical art. This is a wonderful way to go about it.

Fascinating book! May 10 2010
By Jennifer - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I got this book to read to my 3 y/o niece when I went to visit her. She was probably a little young for it, but she did enjoy that there was a princess in the book. It would be fun to share with an older child who might be more interesting in learning about the art.

Katie Brings Art to Life June 21 2013
By Linda E. Koehler - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The Katie and artist series of books is a wonderful way of making the lives of artists relatable to young children. Without thinking about it, students learn about the works of famous artists while entertaining them with the escapades of Katie.
What a great book! Nov. 1 2012

I am a homeschooling mother of two and is therefore constantly looking for educational material. These Katie books are fantastic. I love each and every one of them and this one is no exception. My kids were 5 years old when we started with Katie and they can identify so many famous paintings and the artists who painted it - it's just amazing. This book is so beautifully illustrated it completely captures the minds and imaginations of children. What a wonderful way to be introduced to the world of arts.
