We're sorry, this book is now out of print.

     The arts are stifled and creativity confined when an unusual contest arrives, which sends Rosita and Sian on a journey to discover what a Great Work of Art might be. In their irrepressible and irreverent way, they search library, dance, music, theatre, and art within a town that is becoming alive.
     A cheery but thought-provoking novel for children and adults, Rosita and Sian explore their world with unexpected humor that provides a window into our own. A great read-aloud book, it is also a  serious commentary on creativity and the arts.
