Books About M.C. Escher: Art and Writing

This week's READ-4-LUCK pick is Palazzo Inverso D.B. Johnson.
Mauk is in a rut. Every day seems the same – wake up, work for the Master, repeat. Today, however, something is different. Mauk can’t put his finger on it until he visits the Master’s Grand Palazzo, which is still under construction.
Publisher: Houghton Mifflin
Year: 2010
Word Count: n/a
Book Level: n/a

RATINGS
CHILDREN: 
Especially to turn the book upside down and look at the pictures over and over again. 

PARENTS: 
Very interesting. A quick read for bedtime, but make sure you GO SLOW AND SOAK UP ALL THE IMAGES.

TEACHERS:  A great way to integrate art and writing. Show students a picture (M.C. Escher or any other artist) and ask them to write a short story about it.

WRITERS:  I loved the middle and the ending. Great study for pacing! 
Take one of your stories and cut it in half. See if the text is where the middle of the story ended up. Work on pacing today.

Keep on keepin' on...
