"What a marvelous magical journey for young children to be introduced to the world of fine art! The author cleverly introduces life's lessons throughout the story line with what the famous artist has experienced throughout his lifetime. Art with a message is an engaging adventure for young and old to appreciate the beautiful works of Van Gogh. You will be introduced to the Van Gogh brothers (insightful family information) and an exciting fox who rambles through various scenes, analyzing his decisions. The children will be enchanted by so many beautiful illustrations. Every painting sparks a story of adventure. My favorite illustration is the Interior of a Restaurant, from Paris, June-July, 1887. You will find the list of illustrations in the end notes. The book was inspired by the author's son and I am privileged to pass it on to my 5-year-old grandson, an upcoming artist! " said.

"Two boys chase a fox trying to help it unknown to the fox.

Vincent and Theo spot a fox trying to eat a farmer’s lunch and to save him from being shot by the farmer try to catch him. The fox sees them and runs. The chase is on! The chase takes them through farm lands, villages, restaurants, across the water, and into the city. The sights they saw!

Vincent, Theo and the Fox: A Mischievous Adventure through the Paintings of Vincent van Gogh (2018) is a great way to introduce children to the art of Vincent Van Gogh. Ted Macaluso writes an entertaining story of two brothers, Vincent and Theo Van Gogh, who were brothers in real life. They see a fox and chase him through the art that Vincent later draws. Macaluso gives the point of view of all parties so that it fun for a child and they do not worry about the fox. Macaluso originally came up with the idea when his five-year-old son wanted a bedtime story and picked up an art book of Vincent Van Gogh’s work. Now we all get to enjoy this romp at bedtime.

I received this book for free in a Goodreads Giveaway and give my opinion without prejudice and freely.

" This is the most magical children’s book I’ve read to my kids. The brothers run in and out of Van Gogh’s paintings in the most remarkable story. My kids read it all the time looking at the art work asking questions. A really great read & education for kids. " said.

" This is a lovely little book that I bought to read to my grandson. Has beautiful works by Vincent van Gogh and a sweet story with life lessons in it. " said.

"As a lover of Vincent Van Gogh, I could not resist this children’s book when I saw it. It tells a fictional tale of Vincent and his brother Theo as children. One day while they are out for a walk, they spot a mischievous fox. They decide to try to catch the animal, as they are concerned for his safety. As they chase the fox, they witness his silly mishaps and adventures, all related somehow to various Van Gogh paintings.

The book serves as a beautiful introduction to the world of art and, specifically, the works of Van Gogh. Additionally, the simple narrative provides this important lesson to children: It is okay to not know what you want to do in life right away and it is okay to try different things as you discover your identity.

I enjoyed the book a lot, both for the story and the illustrations. I recommend it for children of all ages, including the grown up ones. :)
