Anecdotal story meant to capture Monet's temperament and desire to capture temporal scenes - getting lost in the moment - with the light, color, and waves of a day by the ocean.

This is a beautiful and interesting book about a real event in the life of Claude Monet while painting the stone arch Manneporte. Young readers will get to know Monet's eccentric temperament and habits as well as his genius. While told in the first person, sidebar notes and a summary at the end of the book supply further informative details. The illustrations are exquisite! This could be incorporate into a study of the actual painting or as part of a study of Impressionism.
