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:

For every kid who has ever had trouble sharing a special toy.

Peanut has a new ball and her big sister, Fifi, wants to play with it. Peanut doesn't want to share, so Fifi tries to entice her with the many different imaginary games they could play with the ball--they could tell fortunes, or have a bakery, or let a seal balance the ball on its nose! Peanut is NOT convinced, until Fifi comes up with a spectacular imaginary adventure that Peanut can't refuse: a trip to space! But is it too late for her to join the game? 

Illustrated in bold graphics and bright colors by an illustrator Maurice Sendak calls "an artist with a superb eye for line and composition," here's a story where the older sibling doesn't always have the upper hand.

Synopsis:

A creative spirit learns that thinking & quot; ish-ly& quot; is far more wonderful than & quot; getting it right& quot; in this gentle new fable from the creator of the award-winning picture book THE DOT.

Ramon loved to draw. Anytime. Anything. Anywhere.

Drawing is what Ramon does. It& #185; s what makes him happy. But in one split second, all that changes. A single reckless remark by Ramon's older brother, Leon, turns Ramon's carefree sketches into joyless struggles. Luckily for Ramon, though, his little sister, Marisol, sees the world differently. She opens his eyes to something a lot more valuable than getting things just & quot; right.& quot; Combining the spareness of fable with the potency of parable, Peter Reynolds shines a bright beam of light on the need to kindle and tend our creative flames with care.

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.
