Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When Andrew gets hold of a pencil, anything canand#151;and doesand#151;happen in this innovative and artistic book. The story literally unfolds step-by-step as readers are invited to follow Andrew through flaps and gatefolds. After sharpening his drawing implement on the first page, Andrew challenges the boundaries of each spread by beginning with a line that leads . . . and leads . . . to unexpected finishes. Staircases become dinosaurs, kites become rockets, and even the most unassuming squiggle morphs into a giant chicken! This lighthearted depiction of artistic inspiration is sure to engage doodlers of all ages.

Praise for Andrew Drew and Drew

"Any question of reality versus representation is the gentlest kind, utterly unobtrusive...Joyful imagination, plain and simple."

and#151;Kirkus Reviews

"The magic comes from the accompanying artwork, which follows the eponymous boy and his adventures in drawing... Like a certain boy with a purple crayon, Andrew knows that drawing offers limitless possibilities, and readers will, too."

and#151;Publishers Weekly

"In this humorous and heartfelt portrait of a young artist, Andrew models by example the ebb and flow of the creative process."

and#151;Shelf-Awareness

"Each page in this cleverly-designed book is filled with a line, a loop, even a stair step that Andrew has doodled on the paper, and the beginnings of his drawings often lead to something that even the artist himself doesnand#8217;t expect."

and#151;Reading Today Online

"The text is spare, with only a few words per page, letting the products of the boyand#8217;s imagination and readersand#8217; anticipation of them shine as the focus of the book. Never has white space seemed so inviting."

and#151;School Library Journal

"Children of all agesand#151;especially those with an interest in drawingand#151;will love exploring the pages of Andrew Drew and Drew. Along the way, they just might absorb some of the bookand#8217;s message about the power of art and the joy of creating it."

Synopsis:

and#160;
When I see a work of art, something happens in my heart!

As a little girl tours and twirls through the halls of the art museum, she finds herself on an exciting adventure. Each piece of art evokes something new inside of her: silliness, curiosity, joy, and ultimately inspiration. When confronted with an empty white canvas, she is energized to create and express herselfand#151;which is the greatest feeling of all.

With exuberant illustrations by Peter H. Reynolds, The Museum playfully captures the many emotions experienced through the power of art, and each childand#8217;s unique creative process.

Praise for The Museum

"Verde and Reynolds deliver a simple premise with a charming payoffand#133; this and#147;twirly-whirlyand#8221; homage to a museum is, on balance, a sweet-natured and handsome celebration."

and#151;Kirkus Reviews

"Debut author Verde makes an engaging case for understanding art as an experience rather than an object."

and#151;Publishers Weekly

"The rhymed text captures the excitement of a being sparked by art.and#8221;

and#151;Booklist

"Communicates a fresh, playful, childlike perspective on art and normalizes childlike responses to it. The idea that posing, laughing, and curious questions are all appropriate museum behavior may be a new one for both children and parents, and knowing this is sure to make for more enjoyable museum visits."

and#151;School Library Journal

"For parents who have trouble communicating the excitement of art to their children, The Museum can serve as the starting point for a conversation. The book is also a wonderful reminder of visual artand#8217;s power to encourage and empower self-expression. Children and adults will finish this book excited about their next art experience, and perhaps tempted to dance through the halls of a museum in the near future."

and#151;Bookpage

"This playful picture book pays tribute to the joyous effect art can have on the viewer."

and#151;Shelf-Awareness

Synopsis:

In the tradition of Harold and the Purple Crayon, an inventive and charming bedtime story that blends whimsical art and sweet photographic touches.

 

Vincent is a very clever boy. So when the night rolls in like a warm blanket, he unravels it and begins to play. The threads of the night become a violin, an elephant, and even a pirate ship—anything to delay bedtime. But in the end, even Vincent cant resist resting his eyes and snuggling up in the dark. Good night, Vincent!

 

Whether delighting in bedtime or are afraid of the dark, every child will enjoy this playful and reassuring picture book that entices even the most rambunctious little dreamers to sleep.

About the Author

Peter H. Reynolds is the president and creative director of FableVision

Studios, the illustrator of the best-selling Judy Moody series, and the

author and illustrator of THE DOT. "Nothing irks me more than seeing a

person's creativity get shut down," he says. "Through my books, I want to help give kids — and grown-up kids — the vocabulary to protect their exploration, in art, writing, and thinking."

Jennifer Starkman, July 7, 2007 (view all comments by Jennifer Starkman)
In Ish, we meet Ramon, who is in many ways Vashti?s opposite: a little boy who would happily draw all the time, making pictures of anything and everything that he encounters. In Ramon?s case, the problems start when his older brother laughs at one of Ramon?s drawings, insisting that it looks nothing like what it is supposed to be. Ramon?s pride and confidence wane, and dissatisfaction sets in. It takes the wisdom of a younger sister who sees the real value of Ramon?s pictures to inspire him to pick up his coloured pencils once again.
