David Travels to the Past
By Gonzalo Martínez de Antoñana
and María José Mosquera

This book has two stories that explore the origins of art. Each story is set in a different time thats very uniqueness shaped art then and even in a small measure now.

The Rock Painters
Art of the Upper Paleolithic Period

David is determined to learn all there is about art and his tutor Master Messina comes up with an ingenious plan to help David learn. Traveling back to prehistoric times in an unique manner David is transported to the beginnings of art.

But a fun art lesson turns into something more when David and Master Messina join up with a group of prehistoric hunters who in their movements bring them into the LasCaux caves. David and Messina take part in the day-to-day lives of the ancient artists who were hunters of what they painted.

The Babylonians
The Art of Mesopotamia

In their second adventure into the past of art David, Master Messina and Angela travel into the time of the Assyrian, Babylonian and Sumerian people hoping to learn all they can about the art of Mesopotamia. And when David makes a comment about wanting to learning the beginnings of Mesopotamian art the three are taken into the past by a most unexpected guide to the Ninive Library!

But the chance to hunt with Assurbanipal draws David while the library lures Messina and Angela to its treasures of knowledge. But the origins that they are searching for can't be found here so when a little help they again change times seeking the assistance of Hammurabi in their quest. The art of the Mesopotamians took many forms painting, etching, sculptures, and even the architecture.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great for learning about the history of art 18 November 2016
By Dawn - Published on Amazon.com
I chose to read this book after receiving a free copy from the author. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.

I used to read the occasional comic book when I was young but graphic novels hadn’t been thought of at that time. David Travels to the Past is a graphic novel that teaches children about some of the history of art. What middle school age child wouldn’t want to read a graphic novel instead of a novel with just a picture here and there? I love this concept and hope to see more books like this in the future.

The story is fun because it involves time travel. First, David’s instructor takes him to the Upper Paleolithic Period to see rock painting first hand. They learn a lot about the people and how they survived. The trip is informative but it also turns out to be a real adventure, and quite dangerous! When they get back, David is able to show what they learned with art.

In the second story, David and his instructor go to Mesopotamia. Angela is there, too, and is able to give her point of view on that era as well. The Babylonians had some magnificent masterpieces and showed them that art can be in many different forms.

David Travels to the Past is definitely a good book for middle school age children to read, enjoy, and learn.
4.0 out of 5 stars I would say that the book is better to understand other than the e-book format 29 November 2016
By Lindsay - Published on Amazon.com
David travels to the past is a graphic novel. I would say that the book is better to understand other than the e-book format. It was hard to understand who was speaking and the words were not in the bubble when you are reading the book in the kindle or e book format.

When I received the book in the mail. It was much better read in the print book that I got. I could understand who was talking and who was doing the speaking. I enjoy the story much that way. The author does a good job with images and storytelling. I would say that the book comes decent.

The pictures are colorful and are done wonderfully. You can tell the story though the pictures. My favorite was the Cave painting story. I enjoyed see some life of Cavemen. It as just refreshing, As they were called prehistoric times.

Discliamer: I recieved a free copy from the publisher/author.

Along the way they learn about the rulers, myths and gods of the time that helped shape the culture and the art.

This Graphic Novel will capture the attention of readers with the 2 stories. Entertaining while educating in a subtle manner the early art movements that have had a lasting impact on art through the ages. Reluctant readers will enjoy this book at 72 pages it will hold their attention through both stories.

I received this book free of charge from the publisher all opinions expressed are my own.

Personal Opinion:

I imagine that this book might be good for those that are reluctant readers as well as for those who rely either on comics or graphic novels to read and be interested in things. I haven't tested this book yet to see if my son might enjoy it (seven months) but I hope in the future he'll like it. I do think that a lot of suspension of disbelief is required to enjoy the story, yet it's designed for middle readers, those in fifth grade or up, and one can learn a lot about art and the way it was back then, which I've found fascinating and many things I haven't known before. I hope that in the future I get a chance to read further adventures of David.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Graphic novel 4 December 2016
By Alaina - Published on Amazon.com
David Travels to the Past by Maria Jose Mosquera Beceiro and Gonzalo Martinez de Antonana is a graphic novel. The authors of this book are educational experts. This book is actually has two different stories to it. The first story David travels to prehistory and the other David travels to Mesopotamia.
The graphic novel revolves around the character by the name of David. David is a restless painter who know all about painting. His teacher, Master Messina, invents a way for David to travel to the past. They both want to know the origins of art. Unfortunately when they get there nothing goes as planned.
The second adventure is in Mesopotamia. David travels with the intelligent Angela.
This book is an educational comic book. This is a fun and exciting adventure. This book would not only be great for those who love to read but also would be great for those who do not really like ready traditional style books since it is a comic book/ graphic novel format. The pictures are very colorful. The pictures are a little odd but I still like them.
Overall I would give this book four out of five stars. Great book for children. The pictures were not quite to my taste but I can see where they would be for children which is the audience this book was written for. I recommend book.
I received this book free for an honest review
