I just love the art of the illustrations in these books by Craig Frazier, and the stories are fun. The grandchildren wanted to look at this one again immediately after the first read through, though they still hadn't quite got the concept of 'inspiration' - there's time enough for that as they keep growing older.
Hank the snake is looking for inspiration, and visits the big city to find it. He asks many people where they get theirs, and he follows their diverse suggestions to an art gallery and home, finding that his inspiration is close to his own, sinuous shape. One could potentially find inspiration anywhere, and I am grateful for Frazier's inspiration for this charming picture book. A true delight.

I like the graphic elements of this book -- clean, with high definition. I'm not sure that it holds up to tell a cohesive story. The repetition gets slightly tedious. The happy ending is lovely, even if it is not really satisfying.

Just a really uninteresting, abstract book. Kids didn't like it, I thought it was a yawner to read out loud, and I didn't really get the point. Skip it...go read Chicken Cheeks another time.

This story is about a snake who ventures out in the city to find out what inspiration is. The ending wasn't all that great, but Hank the snake does learn how to find his inspiration.
Cute little book about Hank the snake and his search for inspiration. When he finally finds it, he's surprised at how easy it was.
great little story about the meaning of inspiration and where you can find it in the smallest of places :)

Hank the snake explores the city in search of inspiration. Speaks with many people who share their sources.
Bold graphic illustrations with stylized people and places. Hank the Snake is a fun character.
