The Lovereading4Kids comment
A Lovereading4kids 'Great Read' you may have missed 2011 selection.
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!
Whether you have a budding artist in the family or not this is a highly original ground-breaking picture book with minimal text and plenty of colourful imagery featuring two friends, one a talented artist and the other a beginner to it. The author and illustrator is the three-time Caldecott medallist David Wiesner.
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 through various artistic media, which turn out to have unexpected pitfalls.
