School Library Journal - 12/01/2022 Gr 3–6—Turns out the crisis from Art Club's last visit to the Institute (Doodleville) wasn't totally averted: a baby from a painting was accidentally kidnapped! Now, Drew and friends have to find a way to sneak the baby back into his painting without Mrs. Krong noticing. Their top secret "reverse heist" doesn't exactly go as planned, however, and inadvertently triggers a schism between various masterpieces whose subjects come to life. Can they save the Institute before the art—and their club—is torn apart? Sell's whimsical, off-the-wall tone makes the art gallery both accessible and interactive, providing possible opportunities for real-life interactions. Dynamic paneling keeps the pace quick and draws attention. The mix of personal styles and ensemble focus adds a strong sense of individuality for each of the diverse Art Club members. VERDICT A creative sequel with wide appeal to artists and art appreciators alike. - Copyright 2022 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
