Reviews

"As my favorite contemporary children's artist-author, only Frank Viva has the esthetic chops to find holes in the certainty of words to let the uncertain poetry of life show through. This book blends and bends simplicity and complexity to their breaking points, and I guarantee it will knock you out."--Chris Ware, author of Building Stories
