Praise for The Noisy Paint Box:

"Even those who aren't inspired to visit a museum will take away the lesson of Kandinsky's life: Listen to what excites you and follow its call." --The New York Times

* "Rosenstock's prose strikes a balance between lightheartedness and lyricism. GrandPré's paintings conjure up an entire epoch . . . breathing life into all the characters." --Publishers Weekly, starred

* "The rich word choice is a delight: pistachio, cobalt, and saffron introduce readers to colors while hissing, blaring, and whispering reveal the sounds of the colors. . . . This is a beautiful blend of colors, music, and life." --Booklist, starred

* "A rich, accomplished piece about a pioneer in the art world." --Kirkus Reviews, starred

* "The book offers diverse potential for different types of study, whether one is reading for information or for pleasure. Outstanding." --School Library Journal, starred
