About this title


Seymour Bleu, the famous artist, is one amazingly cool, blue cat. But Seymour Bleu has a problem: For days he hasn't been able to figure out what to draw or paint. Now he's scared. What if he isn't a great artist after all?

In a panic, he sets off on a frenzied search for inspiration. He visits his favorite places: a colorful garden, a peaceful lake, a bookstore, a museum. But the place where he finds his inspiration at last is a surprise to Seymour and will be a delight to readers.

Catherine Deeter has created a character and a book that is as full of color, energy, and imagination as the artistic spirit she honors. Join Seymour Bleu for a stimulating, educational, and unforgettable journey through a world of art.

From Kirkus Reviews:

Deeter (who illustrated Alice Walker's Finding the Green Stone, 1991, etc.) guides readers through an exploration of the artistic process. A congenial blue cat, Seymour Bleu, faces the great white space of a new canvas; he has artist's block, and begins a journey, touring his garden, a bookstore, museum, and other places in search of inspiration. Ultimately it is the convivial warmth of his friends that provides Seymour Bleu with the stimulus he needs. Deeter's lush, evocative descriptions of color offer readers an artist's view of the world, e.g., a ``tangerine and amethyst rowboat glided easily through the chartreuse lily pads.'' With many sly, feline-enhanced nods to the masters, Deeter's illustrations point to several styles of art, from the examples in Seymour's eclectic studio, to the traditional representations he finds in the bookstore and more modern works found at the art museum and sculpture garden. A color key, mixing tips, and color palette delineating warm and cool colors are provided on the endpapers. An edifying portrait of one of the ways an artist works.
