The Lovereading4Kids comment

A wonderfully uplifting story to say that's it's great to be different that's coupled with intricate, quirky illustrations which are teeming with fanciful inventions for Mr Qwerty is an inventor. The author/illustrator Karla Strambini celebrates the individual and encourages kids to get creative and to let their ideas out and show the world what amazing things they have to share, even when the ideas might at first seem strange. This is a picture book to inspire and enthral young readers.

Synopsis

The Extraordinary Mr. Qwerty by Karla Strambini

Norman Qwerty is a man of many ideas, and none of them is the least bit ordinary. He's quite certain that no one else thinks the way he does, and so he keeps his ideas to himself. But when his ideas get simply too big to hold in, Norman builds the most extraordinary thing! Soon, the beloved Mr Qwerty is never alone (unless he wants to be!), and the world will never be the same.

Reviews

By combining minimal text with highly detailed scenes, Strambini is able to add depth and sophistication to a seemingly simple message. -- Inis Inis
