Monsieur Degas likes to paint the students while they practice in ballet class--they've inspired many of his beautiful paintings. But one day he mistakenly leaves his bag of paints in the dance studio and instead takes a young ballerina's bag, which contains her new tutu for the evening's recital! And so the ballerina begins a great chase to find Degas before her big night. As she searches the streets of Paris, the ballerina encounters many other Impressionist painters, who are in the process of painting some of their great works. Monet, Renoir, Caillebotte, and Cassatt help the ballerina until she is reunited, at last, with Degas. Featuring the original Impressionist paintings that inspired this picture book of historical fiction, along with an author's note about Impressionism and this vibrant period in Paris, Chasing Degas will delight young lovers of art and ballet.
