"Beautifully colourful and humorous, with a wise message." The School Librarian "Sophisticated and playful, this beautiful mind-stretcher invites viewers to think about art's fundamentals: line, color, shape, and imaginative freedom." Booklist "This small-scale and surprisingly comedic story takes place against a placid backdrop of pale desert colors, which recedes to keep the focus squarely on the dynamic between the two lizards and the wide range of emotions that Wiesner masterfully evokes." Publishers Weekly "Funny, clever, full of revelations to those who look carefully-this title represents picture-book making at its best." School Library Journal "Pages splashed with colour and brimming with humour ensure that the reader enjoys every moment." -- Marilyn Brocklehurst The Bookseller
