Riassunto: A solitary boy is drawn to his mysterious new neighbor, an artist named Max. He spends hours in Max's studio, but Max is secretive and does not show the boy his pictures -- until he departs on a journey and leaves behind a surprise exhibition for his young friend. Max's pictures are strange and beautiful. They depict a realm where things, familiar at first glance, nevertheless behave in the most surprising and unpredictable ways. In this spellbinding picture book, the reader joins the boy in contemplating these challenging images, in a celebration of the power of art to transform the everyday into something magical.
Quint Buchholz lives near Munich, Germany. He is also the creator of the internationally acclaimed picture book Sleep Well, Little Bear, a New York Times Outstanding Book of the Year.
Peter F. Neumeyer is a children's book author and reviewer. He lives in Kensington, California.
