It all started when I told my friend Art I would meet him on the corner of Fifth and Fifty-Third. I didn't see him. So I asked a lady walking up the avenue, 'Have you seen Art?' 'MoMA?' asked the lady. 'Just down Fifty-Third Street here.' When this address turns out to be the Museum of Modern Art in New York City, confusion and hilarity ensue. As the narrator continues looking for Art inside MoMA, he views the best pieces of modern art.

A wonderful romp through the MoMA with a youngster who inadvertently poses deep questions about what constitutes art while searching for a friend.

This book allows children to journey through the doors of MoMA and find out what art is and can be. The main character, a little boy searches for his friend Art only to discover works of art at the Museum of Modern Art.

This is a clever and attractive book, trying to define where-and what-is Art.

Makes for a fun read aloud!
