Review

"A truly original picture-book, celebrating the transformative potential of art and friendship." (Irish Times, Robert Dunbar)

"It just seems to dig a little deeper than many other picture books. A hint of Salvador Dali to the backdrops." (Teach Primary Magazine)

"Beautifully colourful and humorous, with a wise message." (The School Librarian)

"Artwork is wonderful. Lots of humour. Lovely story to share repeatedly." (Bookbag)

"Sophisticated and playful, this beautiful mind-stretcher invites viewers to think about art's fundamentals: line, color, shape, and imaginative freedom." (Booklist)

Format: Hardcover
The two haughty, naughty looking lizards had been staring at me for quite some time on Amazon.com's recommended page until I received an email from School Library Journal announcing it as the newest work by Wiesner that prompts me right back to get the book and dive right into the outrageous funny and colorful adventure of ART & MAX. Our family's favorite writer, David Wiesner constantly explores new territory to create picture books to inspire, and this time, he spotlights desert animals - a very welcome direction for residents who live in those areas like me(Central CA) and since reptiles are not my type of pets, this is the first time I get to see upfront and close those unsung heroes very handsomely illustrated.

Arthur is a master artist who engrosses himself in realistic portraits and Max is the enthusiastic rising star who is yet to prove he is a painter just as gifted. Their encounter is a hilarious one that turns disastrous as Max accidentally deconstructs the wise ART teacher himself and for all readers to see is layers of layers of artistic mediums that makes up of Arthur are now dispersed/exploded into pieces, colors evaporated into thin air and melted to ground and only the framed wire is left in Max's hand. This book, like Wiesner's Caldecott Medal winning THE THREE PIGS makes me burst into laughter for its unexpected, wild-but well-conceived framework of plots and characters. In dire approaches to bring disappeared Arthur back to life, Max discovers his own excellence and uniqueness and the newly-resurrected Arthur has also gone through `massive changes' influenced by Max to renovate his own style. My son loves the wired cartoon monster-Arthur maybe the most while my daughter is so pleased with Arthur's new look: "mom, look, he got polke-dots all over him.

what a great book. it is very well Illustrated and as I'm an art teacher I showed it to pupils and other arty staff and although it is aimed at primary pupils everyone enjoyed it and I would recommend it for any age group It certainly brought a smile to all that have read it

David Weisner produces books which stimulate discussion. They are sophisticated enough to get even the most reluctant top primary reader to engage in the story. Another stroke of genius from Mr. Weisner!

I love this book and so does my 3 years old son. He will ask me to repeat it many times during the bedtime story time. He didn't quite get the idea at first but he seems to enjoy the colours and he likes lizards too! After a few reads, he will giggle when Max has assembled the 'wrong' Art, he simply loves it.

A great colourful book for all ages, I still love certain books from when I was a kid (which are more for kids not adults) and certain books you never grow out of and this will be one of them.
