    1. An African American boy from New York City meets Vincent Van Gogh in Central Park and the two of them set off across the city painting the NY sights. After a while, Vincent must leave, but first he takes Bernard to the art museum where he falls in love with art and is inspired to draw.A fun book that makes an art legend accessible. Several of Van Gogh's more famous drawings are recreated in the book as well as pictures of New York in his artistic style.

    2. Bernard, a young boy, meets Vincent Van Gogh in Central Park and they spend time together touring New York. Vincent stops to paint many of the sights. One day, they visit a museum and Bernard notices Vincent's work on display but Vincent has disappearedbut only his person, his spirit seems to pass on to Bernard because now he is inspired to paint.I loved this story, the author's note, and especially the artwork (some from the author and others from his young students). Fun book!

    3. Brief Review: As I was reading The Starry Night it became apparent that the author was a very huge fan of Vincent Van Gogh. So much so that he wrote a fictional book about Von Gogh coming to the U.S. and painting in New York City. The authors note at the beginning of the book is great it explains the book and how the author came about writing the book and how the book was used in his own classroom in a way. Content Area: This book could be used in the Art content area. This book is filled with a [...]

    4. The Starry Night by Neil Waldman presents a picture book fantasy about art, imagination and creativity, as Vincent Van Gogh befriends a boy in New York City.Waldman's illustrations, in the style of Vincent Van Gogh, are done in oil on canvas, acrylic on canvas, and pen and ink on paper. Several sketches of famous paintings by Van Gogh are shown on the wall at MOMA. The color paintings are bright and appealing. Artwork by children appears on the final page and the endpapers. My favorite images ar [...]

    5. This work of historical fiction is clearly from that of an art lover. Neil Walkman imagines running into Vincent Van Gogh in New York's Central Park and spends the day following him from place to place around the city creating stunning paintings. Often times in Art I have my daughter create a piece inspired by the artist instead of simply attempting to replicate their work - this is a wonderful example of how to do that.

    6. The concept of this book is interesting and unique. Waldman's New York paintings in the style of Van Gogh are well done and capture the bright/vibrant colors that Van Gogh was so fond of. My favorite illustrations are the Statue of Liberty, The Brooklyn Bridge, and the kid's recreations of A Starry Night found at the beginning and ending of the book.

    7. Fairly good picture book in which young boy meets Van Gogh in Central Park. Shows how art can help us see things in different and striking ways. Nice illustration style of both the story and the paintings. Nice inclusion of boy's own painting at end.

    8. A nice followup to a unit on Van Gogh. It's definitely for kids who are familiar with Van Gogh--younger kids will not get understand that this is a flight of fancy. Older kids will be itching to get their hands on some art supplies.

    9. I came across this as I was shelving books at the library today and stopped to read it when I noticed the van Gogh theme. It was neat.

    10. the culamative adventure of a young boy who in his imagination brings van gogh to america to pay new york city

    11. A wonderful introduction to Vincent Van Gogh's work and style of painting. It will make children want to see his work.

    12. Young boy's eyes are opened to art after spending a day with VanGogh. Illustrations are beautiful, as would be expected.
