The little boy and the hallways are drawn but there are actual famous artworks along the hallways. Our hero passes by Starry Night, Warhol's Marilyn Monroe, and that creepy dada fuzzy saucer job. (Those of you who took art history know what I'm talking about, and it gives me the major creepies)
At the end of the book there is a little list of all the artwork included in the book and a credit for each of them.
Scieszka has made approximately a million kids books and most of them are illustrated by Smith. Scieszka's book series the Time Warp Trio is even a Saturday morning cartoon. I really dig all his stuff and those of you interested should check out their website, here.
The moral of this story: cute and worth your time. This would also be a nice gift for art nerds.
