Janson is a mouse who lives in a museum, and one day she wanders into the modern art section..."and her little world open[s]." "Mousterpiece" introduces (but doesn't name, except in the back matter) a good number (22!) of famous modern artists and techniques in a friendly way: Janson paints her own pictures in styles inspired by the art she sees ("in dots"=a portrait of a mouse, Seurat-style; "in squares, circles, triangles"=Picasso, etc). The very simple language describing movements and artists without naming them is really nice--it means the text doesn't get bogged down, instead focusing on Janson's joy in discovering all the different ways to make visual art (she develops her own style by the end!). The end notes are good jumping-off pieces to studying individual artists and movements.

A great way to introduce little ones to classic works of art!
