Remy and Lulu is a great book about Art. In this book, it compares Abstract and realistic art. While the man is not successful at selling his art work, in the end he ends collaborating his art with his dog. This book shares that every type of art can be appreciated.

This is a great novel about friends sticking together and helping each other in times of hardships. It is also a novel about acceptance, acceptance of one's self and style and acceptance of your friends. I think this is a great novel to teach children about friendship, as well as, about different interpretations of art.

Lulu, a dog abandoned in the city, meets Remy, a struggling artist, out in the countryside. Remy's portraits are not exactly popular, but little Lulu has amazing painting talents of her own, and soon, the pair are a huge success.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0449810852, Hardcover)

Ooh la la! From New York Times bestseller Kevin Hawkes, illustrator of Library Lion and Weslandia, comes the charming story of a dog and her owner who become the toast of Paris.
 
Lulu and her master, Remy, a passionate but struggling portrait painter, wander the French countryside looking for customers. They don’t need much business —just enough for some figs and cheese to keep their bellies full—but not many people seem to appreciate Remy’s abstract style.
 
Before long, Lulu secretly lends a paw to Remy’s work and—voilà!—the pair are the most celebrated artists on the salon circuit. If only Remy knew why . . .
 
With art from both beloved children’s book illustrator Kevin Hawkes and award-winning miniatures artist Hannah Harrison, this funny and heartwarming story about friendship and creativity shows that there are many ways to be good at the same thing . . . and that a true friend is always there for you.

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:14:30 -0400)

A down-on-his-luck painter with poor eyesight teams up with a dog with a knack for painting portraits.
