Talk about saying alot in afew words and pictures!! I love this book!

It's really just about breaking through pre-set borders, or values, or laws - call it what ever you want - that certain groups (age, educational, experts, professionals) want art to be. What THEY think it is and what it should be. And how people will agree with them because they don't know any different (and can't do it on their own anyways! I believe those are called Patrons....!).

But sometimes - just sometimes - if they're big enough.... they can let someone younger (and more willing to try new things) show them a new way to SEE it.

Great story with a big idea. Fantastic artwork- but that's a given coming from David Wiesner. And fun!!! Everyone should throw themselves with such abandon at art!! It's amazing what you will find in yourselves!
