"A Boy Named Art" by Australian author/illustrator P.S. Clinen features a great book cover, and is wonderfully dramatically illustrated throughout with pen-ink drawings.

I was a lucky winner of "A Boy Named Art" which I received through a giveaway from goodreads.com. My 11 year old daughter and I both read the book. My daughter enjoyed it and wished it was longer.

A lonely boy named Art meets Lol.
Reminds me of Edgar Allan Poe poetry. I also like the drawings.

I won this book in a Goodreads giveaway. A great rhyming book that would be perfect for any kid who feels "different" or "weird." Everyone has a friend waiting for them who will appreciate their quirks.
