Brought to you in the modern style

Have you ever seen J.otto Seibold and Vivian Walsh's books? The are the author/ illustrators of the most fabulous Mr.Lunch series and Olive the Other Reindeer.
Going to the Getty is all about visiting the Getty Center in Los Angeles. It is, in all ways, fantastic. If your child has apprehensions about visiting a museum, this book will peak their interest.

"Thanks to the royal egg timer the Queen's royal eggs were always perfect. That was a long time ago."

Seibold and Walsh detail information about the Getty Center with humor and panache. From the inside of the dust jacket:

"This is a book of facts about the Getty Center in Los Angeles.
It offers:
51 Fun Facts
3 Sort-Of Facts
1 Birds-Eye view
and an Endless Column

It contains weights and measurements

and it's brought to you in the modern style.

J.otto Seibold and Vivian Walsh, usually purveyors of dog and monkey tales, now focus their attention on on a major cultural institution.

Getty, once a man, now a Center."
