An introduction to the great painter, seen through the eyes of a young boy entranced by his painting. There are reproductions of Van Gogh's work.

Where Camille lives, the sunflowers grow so high they look like real suns. One day a strange man arrives in Camille's town. He has a straw hat and a yellow beard and his name is Vincent van Gogh. Featuring stunning reproductions of the great artist's work and based on a true-life incident as seen through the eyes of a small boy, this is the perfect introduction to Vincent van Gogh for children.
