    One thought on “Behind the Canvas”

    1. Claudia Miravista is a loner. Her interests don't mesh with those of other twelve-year-olds in middle school. She is fascinated by art and the artists who created it. Her proudest possession is Dr. Buchhardt's Art History for the Enthusiast and the Ignorant which is the source of the many footnotes in this story. She loves to hang out in art museums.Claudia's adventures begin when she sees a blue-eyed boy in the background of a picture where he doesn't belong. She sees him again in a different p [...]

    2. Sigh. Here comes the hard part; I didn't like Behind the Canvas. I wanted to. I desperately wanted to. It sounded eerily similar to my much beloved Elsewhere series by Jacqueline West, but with a different execution. Then, to read on and discover that it is essentially Elsewhere rewritten. . .well, let's just say I wasn't impressed by that.They say there are no original ideas and I'd have to concur, but then methinks there are ideas that are your own and ideas you merely borrow. This feels a lot [...]

    3. I've read the first 14 chapters in July but the book didn't hold my attention. Now after 5 months I picked it up again to give it another shot. I managed to read another 5 chapters (of 30) but realised that it wasn't worth the time. I've read almost 2/3 of the book and I'm quite disappointed about everything. I don't like Claudia nor Prim. I really loved the blurb of the book and simply expected something totally different. More of a girl detective solving mysteries in one painting at a time sty [...]

    4. Spellbounding !Magical ! Fascinating ! I could come up with a lot more adjectives like this, but I don't think they would be enough to describe the beauty of this book. Right from the first page till the last, this book siphoned my entire attention and focus. Like how Claudia had the ability to go through the paintings, I too had an ability on my own. I possessed a portal through which I could go to uncharted places and experience the Magic of it.I was referring to the Book of course :D The book [...]

    5. WOW what a fascinating read. I started the book with a great deal of trepidation but soon found myself drawn into the world of Claudia, Pim, Nee Gezicht, the three Dutchman, Cash and the world behind the canvas. It was so interesting watching Claudia have to sort her way through different challenges, to see her heart be challenged, and to learn to think past her fear. I will have no problem letting my 10 year old this book and tend to think that most youth will have no problems reading this stor [...]

    6. With a title like “Behind The Canvas”, the book obviously starts in an art museum. The protagonist of the story is named Claudia Miravista. She is a slightly awkward girl in middle school who happens to adore art. This field trip is something that she can really get into. She wanders off in the museum by herself and stumbles upon a painting where there is a boy that has the “dreamiest blue eyes”. She tells some of her classmates because they are talking about cute boys and she wants them [...]

    7. "Behind the Canvas" is an unspeakably incredible adventure with a feel of Narnia (C S Lewis) and The Door Within Series (Wayne Thomas Batson) coming together with oodles of art history and the absolute wonder of creativity. The protagonist, Claudia, is a twelve year old girl who develops an extraordinary amount of courage and bravery throughout the book. She has delightful character and personality - a quiet disposition with a penchant for fierce passion. I love her, I love this book, I love it [...]

    8. A fun story for any young reader who enjoys art or art history.Claudia loves art. She loves to draw and loves looking at paintings and learning about the artists that painted them. One day she discovers a boyboy with vivid blue eyes in a painting that starts talking to her. She learns that he can move from painting to painting and they quickly become friends. After discovering that he is not a figment of her imagination and is in fact a real boy trapped behind the canvas by an evil witch, she vo [...]

    9. Claudia loves to draw, and she loves spending time in museums, sketching the paintings she sees--and then something (or SOMEONE) strange appears in a Dutch painting she is studying. It is boy, Pim, who reveals to Claudia an entire world that lives behind the canvas of every painting, a world that was created from the synergy of oil paint and canvas. Pim is a real boy who has been trapped in this painted world for hundreds of years by an evil witch, Nee Gezicht ("the Sightless One" in Dutch), and [...]

    10. This is an older children's book, and has not only a lot of action, but also quite a bit of art education. The author has included the art info as footnotes so that readers will not get bogged down with these asides. But I loved the information. What a wonderful review of things I knew, and things I never knew about art. Back to the story, it is inventive and creative and will keep the reader turning pages!I would like to read the prior book that this author has written.I received this book in a [...]

    11. E ARC from NetgalleyThe Heartbreak Messenger is one of my all time favorite books, and schools where students are very interested in art, or are fans of Blue Balliet's books, will definitely find this book interesting. There are lots of descriptions of famous paintings and footnotes about artists, and this is a decent time travelish kind of fantasy. I just don't have any students who are interested in art at all, so will pass on purchasing.

    12. Behind the Canvas is one of those novels that I'm torn on when it comes to my rating. (It's actually a 3.75 stars for me, if you must know.) There are so many wonderful things about it - the integration of actual artists and artwork, the clever footnote commentary, the magical adventure. But the first fourth or so is a bit of a slog, and the pacing doesn't quite match that of the rest of it. Still, there's certainly merit to this one and I ended up enjoying it!

    13. What a great book! I loved the incorporation of the artists and their work, the footnotes were priceless! Not a sappy, feel good ending, but a truthful one. Nicely done! Definitely recommend to teachers using art, or visiting the Art Institute! Good shout out!

    14. WOW what a fascinating read. I started the book with a great deal of trepidation but soon found myself drawn into the world of Claudia, Pim, Nee Gezicht, the three Dutchman, Cash and the world behind the canvas. It was so interesting watching Claudia have to sort her way through different challenges, to see her heart be challenged, and to learn to think past her fear. It is very much is an exciting fast moving story.One of the features I enjoyed (and if I had known about it before I read the boo [...]

    15. I just couldn't get into this book. I struggled for days finally reading about 75% of it but I just didn't care about the characters or the story. I wanted to like it as the premise is great, the references to art are fantastic but I just didn't like it. Finally I saved myself and went on to a new book.

    16. I didn't expect Pim to die at the end, but it does make sense, in retrospect. It is sad---Claudia did this all to free Pim, and yet the ending is only bittersweet.

    17. Thoroughly entertaining. Claudia discovers a world where paintings have come to life - both the beautiful and the terrifying. She's on a quest to save a friend, a boy who it turns out had a hand in his own tragedy.

    18. I have many feelings about this mediocre book. Tl;dr the premise is interesting and I found the book entertaining but a bit difficult to get through. I'd recommend picking it up if the blurb interests you but I'd never spend real money on it.The following is a long rant.I picked this up hoping it would be in the fantasy sub-genre of an open universe/surreal fantasy- something in the vein of Alice In Wonderland or Furthermore where the rules of the fantasy world are not super well-defined in the [...]

    19. This is definitely a book I would have adored as a kid. It was part art history lesson, part fantasy adventure, part friendship story- so basically everything I loved reading about at age 10. I thought this book was very clever and fun and had a really interesting plot. I really enjoyed the idea of a world behind the paint (which I've seen tried in other capacities but never to this extent/success). Definitely a fun read and a sneaky way to learn lots about art and art history.

    20. *I received a free review copy of this book from the publisher through my district library services*An exciting adventure that will also educate readers about art history. Struggling readers may balk at the footnotes, but eager readers will eat up the tongue-in-cheek art lessons. The ending definitely leaves open the possibility of a sequel.

    21. This review originally published in Looking For a Good Book. Rated 4.5 of 5Claudia Miravista loves it when her class takes a trip to the art museum because Claudia loves art. But when she sees a boy go in and out of view in some paintings, she is ridiculed by her peers when she tries to tell them about it. But the boy, Pim, is real, and Claudia learns that there is a world behind the paintings and because she is "Artisti" she has the ability to also travel in the land behind the canvas and possi [...]

    22. Who wouldn't enjoy being able to go into a painting of your choosing? Behind the Canvas is a great book for all ages of people who love art or want to love it. Claudia Miravista is a young artist that discovers something strange on a school trip to an art museum. I won't say more about the story because I don't want to spoil it! I really enjoyed the audio book, the narrator did a great job. However I feel like I might have missed some things by listening instead of reading a hardback or paperbac [...]

    23. I will have to admit that "Behind the Canvas" was very entertaining.In Behind the Canvas, Claudia is a shy girl with no friends who lives and breathes paintings. She could study paintings forever, and loves to imitate famous pieces. But one day something strange happens-one of the paintings moves. To be more specific, a blue-eyed boy who doesn't belong moves. Then the boy talks and she learns his name is Pim. Pim is a REAL boy who was trapped behind canvas by a witch. Claudia also learns that be [...]

    25. ~ARC provided by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review~Claudia loves art but never truly understand what's really under the surface until Pim appears in the painting she sees.

    26. Ever wonder what lies Behind the Canvas of a famous oil painting painted by a famous artist? No? Well, Claudia Miravista, art history aficionado, didn't either until that fateful day when she wandered through the Florence (Florence, Illinois, that is) Art Museum and spied in the corner of the famous Three Dutchman painting a boy with bright blue eyes staring at her.
