David Wiesner's new book, Art & Max is #5 on the New York Times best-seller list!
A gorgeous picture book about the misadventures of two lizard friends, one of whom is trying to learn how to paint. Executed primarily in gouache--a first for this artist--the illustrations have all the finesse and humor of Wiesner's award-winning work. Animal characters and a very brief text that consists entirely of dialogue make this a particularly lighthearted story, which nonetheless has something to say about friendship . . . and art.
