An interactive book about fine art introduces children into a distant theory of art in a playful way, so they may easily relate to it. Difficult terms are explained through, e.g. simple verses, supplemented by a dictionary as well. While reading, the children's reader is accompanied by two characters named Galé and Ria, who introduce 22 artistic pieces and turn the reader's attention to main highlights. Furthermore, it is possible to write into the book, make notes, or to do given assignments. The book helps a child to enter the world of Slovak fine art, to understand the hidden meanings of pieces, to perceive them not only through eyes but in a different way, and to develop the system of values. The book was awarded The Best Children's Book of the Summer 2017.
