What do you do when your father does not return from Italy? You look for him, of course.
Amid the golden era of Dutch art, Clara has a passion for painting and life. But the two don't always mix. Her father is long overdue from Italy with the latest paint recipes, but lies, famous art, rare tulips, and sugary girls crowd Clara's search for her father. Someone knows where he might be, but it will cost more than Clara's talents to find out. This short children's novel by Douglas Jones is entertaining and allows kids to enter into another time period with likeable and exemplary characters. A real treat for young readers!
