Snail Trail

By Hilary White

Jo Saxton’s Snail Trail takes the young reader on a tour of eight modern art masterpieces. Apart from being great fun, the book can be used as a starting point for a range of activities.


Matisse’s snail

Look at Matisse’s collage picture ‘The Snail’ at the end of the book and compare the collage with the snail in the story. Can the children spot similar coloured shapes in the collage and the snail’s shell? Show them how the shapes in Matisse’s collage curl around to make a spiral, and compare the shape of the snail’s blue body with the blue rectangle in the picture.
