Max and Arthur are friends who share an interest in painting. Arthur is an accomplished painter; Max is a beginner. Max’s first attempt at using a paintbrush sends the two friends on a whirlwind trip through various artistic media, which turn out to have unexpected pitfalls. Although Max is inexperienced, he’s courageous—and a quick learner. His energy and enthusiasm bring the adventure to its triumphant conclusion. Beginners everywhere will take heart.

Drawing on such diverse influences as George Herriman’s Krazy Kat, Salvador Dali’s work, and his own early encounters with art, David Wiesner has crafted a story that goes straight to the essentials—friendship, creativity, and the mysterious point where these two forces intersect.

A thought-provoking exploration of the creative process....Funny, clever, full of revelations to those who look carefully—this title represents picture-book making at its best. —School Library Journal,starred review

Children will giggle and marvel....Triple Caldecott winner Wiesner delivers a wildly trippy, funny and original interpretation of the artistic process. —Kirkus Reviews,starred review

This small-scale and surprisingly comedic story takes place against a placid backdrop of pale desert colors, which recedes to keep the focus squarely on the dynamic between the two lizards and the wide range of emotions that Wiesner masterfully evokes. —PublishersWeekly,starred review

Sophisticated and playful, this beautiful mind-stretcher invites viewers to think about art's fundamentals: line, color, shape, and imaginative freedom. —Booklist,starred review

[A] visual meditation on the effects of illustrative style. . . . Detailed with Wiesner's signature craft and wit. —The Horn Book
