This intriguing child's-eye view of Claude Monet and his works starts at the turn of the 20th century, when American artists flocked to Giverny to study the painter's technique. It tells the story of Lily, the daughter of one such artist, who sneaks into Monet's garden and develops a friendship with him. As Lily sketches, Monet talks about his life. He explains the idea of Impressionism in a way that will make children not only understand the genre, but also want to imitate it themselves.
