There's never before been a children's art book like Gallop!

Employing a patented new technology called Scanimation, each page in this educational children's book is a marvel that brings animals, along with one shining star, to life with art that literally moves. It's impossible not to flip the page, and flip it again, and again, and again. A first book of motion for kids, this book for preschool children shows a horse in full gallop and a turtle swimming up the page. A dog runs, a cat springs, an eagle soars, and a butterfly flutters.

Created by Rufus Butler Seder, an inventor, artist, and filmmaker fascinated by antique optical toys, Scanimation is a state-of-the-art six-phase animation process that combines the ""persistence of vision"" principle with a striped acetate overlay to give the illusion of movement. It harks back to the old magical days of the kinetoscope, and the effect is astonishing.

Complementing the art in this art book for children is a delightful rhyming text full of simple questions and fun, nonsense replies: Can you gallop like a horse? giddyup-a-loo! Can you strut like a rooster? cock-a-doodle-doo! Every child who opens this art book for children will be amazed, and so will every parent!

This art book, full of art activities for children, is one of many children's art books available from the National Gallery.
