Our bodies might all differ in shape, and form, and frame, but think how dull the world would be if we were all the same…

Celebrate difference and diversity with this wonderful and beautiful book that tells children it’s OK to be different – in fact it’s perfect to be different. Told from the perspective of works of art, the book illustrates different styles and movements and demonstrates that there is no single masterpiece in galleries, or with people – we’re all works of art in our own special way.

Illustrated by the artist Rose Blake, and packed with different types of art on every page, the book also includes a handy beginners’ guide to the various styles of art – from prehistoric to cubist, ancient Egyptian to contemporary.

Written by bestselling author, Mark Sperring, the text is lyrical, funny and perfect for reading aloud.

Don’t forget – we are all works of art. Every one of us is an original!
