Art & Max


  • 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.
    –Publishers Weekly
  • Triple Caldecott winner Wiesner delivers a wildly trippy, funny and original interpretation of the artistic process. In this illustrator’s world, mind-blowing art comes from accident, if you’re brave enough (like Max) to smile and take an awkward leap.
