Editorial Reviews

A thought-provoking exploration of the creative process? .Funny, clever, full of revelations to those who look carefully-this title represents picture-book making at its best."- School Library Journal, starred review "Children will giggle and marvel? .Triple Caldecott winner Wiesner delivers a wildly trippy, funny and original interpretation of the artistic process."- Kirkus Reviews, starred review "This small-scale and surprisingly comedic story takes place against a placid backdrop of pale desert colors, which recedes to keep the focus squarely on the dynamic between the two lizards and the wide range of emotions that Wiesner masterfully evokes."- Publishers Weekly, starred review "Sophisticated and playful, this beautiful mind-stretcher invites viewers to think about art's fundamentals: line, color, shape, and imaginative freedom."- Booklist, starred review "[A] visual meditation on the effects of illustrative style. . . . Detailed with Wiesner's signature craft and wit."- The Horn Book "Longtime children's book legend David Wiesner takes exciting risks with his newest book about two art-making critters."-The Huffington Post "
