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."

Review:

"Wordplay of the title aside, Saltzberg's ode to drawing is fairly earnest and straightforward in its prose. The magic comes from the accompanying artwork, which follows the eponymous boy and his adventures in drawing. His pencil lines sweep across white pages ('Andrew doodled and doodled. Sometimes he noodled'), and his creations take unpredictable shape, revealed bit-by-bit by overlapping gatefolds (a staircase Andrew draws eventually forms a dinosaur's spiny back, and a cross-hatched night sky turns into a trumpet-nosed winged beast in the final spread). Like a certain boy with a purple crayon, Andrew knows that drawing offers limitless possibilities, and readers will, too. Ages 3 — 6." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
