Luna Loves Art

By Joseph Coelho
Illustrated by Fiona Lumbers

Come on a school trip to the art gallery with Luna and Finn, and discover what a family really looks like... from the team that brought us Luna Loves Library Day.

At the gallery, Luna is transfixed by the famous art, but her classmate Finn doesn’t seem to want to be there at all. Finn's family doesn't look like the one in Henry Moore's 'Family Group' sculpture, but then neither does Luna's. Maybe all Finn needs is a friend. Join Luna and Finn at the Art Gallery and step inside famous works of art by Van Gogh, Picasso, Jackson Pollock and more! Can you spot all the art? Created by award-winning poet Joseph Coelho, this book follows Luna Loves Library Day as an introduction to different types of family.

  • In this follow-up to Luna Loves Library Day, we meet Luna’s mum, and learn that not all families are the same.
  • Spot famous art from around the world: from paintings to concept pieces, from Henri Rousseau to Jackson Pollock.
  • A spectacular moment with silver foiling where Luna and her classmates experience immersive art.

About the illustrator

Fiona Lumbers has drawn on anything and everything from an early age and always insisted she would be an artist when she grew up. Fiona moved to London in 2000 to study for an MA in Painting at the Royal College of Art. A combination of her obsession with picture books and the arrival of her first son led her down the path of illustration and she hasn't looked back since. Nothing makes her happier than splashing watercolours and inks and conjuring up new characters - often influenced by the exploits of her two sons.
