I marvel at this author/artist's ability to captivate the reader with what looks like doodles out of a notebook. Yes, of course, the doodles are more tedious - actually, I take back the word "doodle." The illustrations are more like tedious ink drawings depicting a dramatic journey of a boy and girl. The couple travels through a series of obstacles including a bright yellow mountain monster! The use of primary colors sets off a unique vibration that remains pleasing to the eye. There are no words in the book except for the occasional action like, "splash" or "thwack!"
This title is simply brilliant for all ages but is actually geared toward PreK to 3rd graders. Who's looking at age anyway?!
