When Monique, a young visiting nurse, steps into the home of an elderly patient, she finds herself in rooms filled with the most vivid color she has ever seen. Her patient is the artist Henri Matisse, and as Matisse recovers from his illness, he and Monique become good friends. Later, Monique enters a convent where she becomes a nursing nun and by happy coincidence, she meets Matisse once again. Her religious order is so poor that they don t have a chapel of their own, but Matisse decides that with Monique s help, he can remedy that situation. He develops a sketch drawn by Monique into a brilliant set of stained-glass chapel windows, and then uses his influence to raise enough money for the chapel s construction. This true account of Matisse and the chapel at Vence, in southern France, is the main focus of Laurence Anholt s newest delightful children s story. Anholt s illustrations faithfully reproduce many of Matisse s wonderful artworks in this beautiful storybook."
