Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great first picture book This first book by award winning Toronto graphic designer is breathtaking. This book is illustrated with in a very limited pallet, predominantly in black and light yellow and blue. The only other colors are red, mainly for the riders jersey, and brown for the road. The people have a slightly surrealistic look but the background and skylines are simple yet evocative illustrations. Children will love the fun illustrations yet they are of such a quality adults will not bore of reading the book over and over again. We enjoyed this one greatly and look forward to more books by Viva in the future.
