The Lovereading4Kids comment
Award-winning illustrator David Wiesner celebrates different kinds of creativity in this beautifully illustrated and wittily observed story of friendship. Friends Art and Max both love painting; Max is just a beginner and his experiments to get it right take the two friends on some delightful adventures through colour and line as he tries to find out exactly what he wants to paint – and how he’ll do it!
Art and Max by David Wiesner
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 with paints, pastels and pencils, which turn out to have unexpected pitfalls.
Sophisticated and playful, this beautiful mind-stretcher invites viewers to think about art's fundamentals: line, color, shape, and imaginative freedom. Booklist
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
Funny, clever, full of revelations to those who look carefully-this title represents picture-book making at its best. School Library Journal
The masterful Wiesner takes a deconstructionist view of art through the interactions of two lizards, one an accomplished painter and the other an exuberant wannabe. Together they explore different mediums, color, and line with a minimum of dialogue and brilliantly hued panels and spreads dripping with paint and humor. School Library Journal
Pages splashed with colour and brimming with humour ensure that the reader enjoys every moment. -- Marilyn Brocklehurst The Bookseller
