The stars in Vincent van Gogh's painting are so beautiful that Katie can't resist reaching in and taking one. But what will she do when all the other stars come tumbling out of the painting, too? Will Katie be able to catch the stars before the gallery guard notices they've floated away? Features five Van Gogh masterpieces: The Starry Night, Noon, Vincent's Chair, Fishing Boats on the Beach, and The Olive Grove.

James Mayhew created his first Katie book Katie's Picture Show more than 20 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.From Booklist:
During a museum visit, Katie climbs into Van Gogh’s painting The Starry Night and takes a star to show Grandma, who is napping nearby. When the other stars trail her through the gallery, she borrows a chair, a ladder, and a fishing net from other Van Gogh paintings to help her replace the stars. The story may be slight, but the vivid illustrations take readers into six Van Gogh masterpieces for a closer look, while the back page comments on each one. Useful for preschool and primary-grade units, this picture book from the Katie series offers a playful introduction to the artist’s work. Preschool-Grade 2. --Carolyn Phelan
