When Andrew gets hold of a pencil, anything can--and does--happen in this innovative and artistic book. The story literally unfolds step-by-step as readers are invited to follow Andrew through flaps and gatefolds. After sharpening his drawing implement on the first page, Andrew challenges the boundaries of each spread by beginning with a line that leads . . . and leads . . . to unexpected finishes. Staircases become dinosaurs, kites become rockets, and even the most unassuming squiggle morphs into a giant chicken! This lighthearted depiction of artistic inspiration is sure to engage doodlers of all ages. Praise for Andrew Drew and Drew Any question of reality versus representation is the gentlest kind, utterly unobtrusive...Joyful imagination, plain and simple. --Kirkus Reviews The magic comes from the accompanying artwork, which follows the eponymous boy and his adventures in drawing... Like a certain boy with a purple crayon, Andrew knows that drawing offers limitless possibilities, and readers will, too. --Publishers Weekly In this humorous and heartfelt portrait of a young artist, Andrew models by example the ebb and flow of the creative process. --Shelf-Awareness Each page in this cleverly-designed book is filled with a line, a loop, even a stair step that Andrew has doodled on the paper, and the beginnings of his drawings often lead to something that even the artist himself doesn't expect. --Reading Today Online The text is spare, with only a few words per page, letting the products of the boy's imagination and readers' anticipation of them shine as the focus of the book. Never has white space seemed so inviting. --School Library Journal Children of all ages--especially those with an interest in drawing--will love exploring the pages of Andrew Drew and Drew. Along the way, they just might absorb some of the book's message about the power of art and the joy of creating it. --BookPage AWARDS: GOLD - 2012 National Parenting Publications Book Awards RECOMMENDED - 2012 Parents' Choice Awards, Picture Books Noteworthy Titles for Children and Teens - 2013 Capitol Choices Binding Type: HardcoverAuthor: Barney SaltzbergPublisher: Harry N.
