But when he is magicked to seventeenth-century Venice, and meets the mysterious Canal Painter (Canaletto!) he realises just how amazing glasses can be! A wonderfully imaginative, inspiring, and colourful story about a little boy who creates his very own masterpiece! Plus really engaging and interactive facts about Venice, Canaletto, and painting.
