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?

 

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.
