Ish by Peter H. Reynolds


Ish by Peter H. Reynolds

An inspiring, encouraging story for budding artists everywhere, the acclaimed illustrator of The Dot, Sky Colour and the Judy Moody series tells the story of Ramon, who loves to draw. Anytime. Anything. Anywhere. Drawing is what Ramon does. It's what makes him happy. But in one split second, all that changes. A single remark by Ramon's older brother, Leon, turns Ramon's carefree sketches into joyless struggles. Luckily for Ramon, though, his little sister, Marisol, sees the world differently and she opens his eyes to something a lot more valuable than getting things exactly right...


A sophisticated book for aspiring artists and deluded perfectionists of all ages. The Observer; An intelligent tale of self-expressionism and an absolute feast for the eyes. Baby & You
