I have about a dozen children’s picture books at home from the library, but I wasn’t going to read any of them until I made more progress with my current novel, but I couldn’t resist the striking cover illustration on this book.

It’s appropriate that on the book’s cover, the illustrator is listed as the first author and the text author is listed as the second author.

The illustrations are really wonderful, and they’re all in black & white, so this might be a good book for infants: they’ll be a

My five-year-old son checked this book out from the library this week.

This is a visually stunning book. The illustrations are weirdly wonderful. The text, however, falls far short. The story could have been weirdly wonderful, but instead it is just weird.

I enjoyed the black and white illustrations. The story was kind of weak though.
Amazing artwork highlights this story of a very unusual and unlikely friendship.

My 7-year-old son said this book deserves an award for the illustration.
