While she's in the Metropolitan Museum with her grandmother, a little girl leaves her prized yellow balloon tied to a railing outside. But its string becomes untied, and the balloon embarks on an uproarious journey through New York City. With an ever-increasing cast of wacky urban characters in tow, it soars past a host of landmarks. Eighteen famous paintings and sculptures are reproduced in this delightful, wordless book that explores the magical relationship between art and life.

    大都會美術館的守衛說:「你不可以帶氣球進美術館喔!」於是,小女孩把氣球留在門口,開開心心地和祖母一塊入館參觀了。可是,繫在門外的氣球卻飛了起來,在越來越多的人群追逐下,展開了一場精采滑稽的城市之旅。而在此時的美術館內,小女孩正愉快地穿越一間間展覽室,欣賞著美麗的經典作品。眼尖的讀者,是否已發覺氣球之旅和畫作內容間的關聯了呢?這本書中沒有任何文字,讀者可以自由發揮想像空間,在一格格圖片間延展出屬於自己的獨特詮釋。少了文字的干擾,讀者們更能專注於圖畫本身的魅力。而繪者只將主要人物著色的作法,亦突顯出 ...(continue)

    大都會美術館的守衛說:「你不可以帶氣球進美術館喔!」於是,小女孩把氣球留在門口,開開心心地和祖母一塊入館參觀了。可是,繫在門外的氣球卻飛了起來,在越來越多的人群追逐下,展開了一場精采滑稽的城市之旅。而在此時的美術館內,小女孩正愉快地穿越一間間展覽室,欣賞著美麗的經典作品。眼尖的讀者,是否已發覺氣球之旅和畫作內容間的關聯了呢?這本書中沒有任何文字,讀者可以自由發揮想像空間,在一格格圖片間延展出屬於自己的獨特詮釋。少了文字的干擾,讀者們更能專注於圖畫本身的魅力。而繪者只將主要人物著色的作法,亦突顯出畫作與真實生活間的微妙聯繫。「別帶氣球進美術館」系列目前已出版三本,大都會美術館是其中的第一本。此系列不僅為著名博物館作了生動的導覽,更開展出一種全新的繪本表現手法。

    紹博物館的無字書繪本, 繪者巧妙地將館中畫作或雕塑品與現實中情境結合,讓人不僅開懷大笑也認識了館中的珍藏作品。

    Genials.
    Un libro con due storie.
    Che scorrono parallele e speculari.
    Da un lato un bimba con la nonna, che passeggiano tra le opere del Metropolitan Museum.
    Dall'altra un palloncino giallo che sfugge, un custode che parte all'inseguimento e che si scapicolla per tutta New York.
    Le immagini dei quadri e delle sculture visitate dalla bimba coincidono visivamente con le disavventure del custode alle prese con il palloncino.
    Semplice ma divertente. Un bel modo per passeggiare temporalmente nella storia dell'arte e spazialmente (ma si dice spazialmente?) nella Grande Mela.
    2 in 1.
