Synopsis

Synopsis

The sky’s no limit as the author-illustrator of The Dot and Ish winds up his Creatrilogy with a whimsical tale about seeing the world a new way.

Marisol loves to paint. So when her teacher asks her to help make a mural for the school library, she can’t wait to begin! But how can Marisol make a sky without blue paint? After gazing out the bus window and watching from her porch as day turns into night, she closes her eyes and starts to dream. . . . From the award-winning Peter H. Reynolds comes a gentle, playful reminder that if we keep our hearts open and look beyond the expected, creative inspiration will come.
Praise

Praise

Besides encouraging children to paint what they actually see rather than repeating the visual conventions they’ve learned, this original offering frames an apparent problem as a challenge with a simple solution. Rounding out the picture book series that began with THE DOT (2003), this fresh, whimsical picture book encourages the artist and the creative thinker in every child.
—Booklist (starred review)

Reynolds’s characteristically wispy and loose mixed-media art makes judicious use of color in a way that accentuates Marisol’s creativity. Once again, Reynolds’s message is to think outside the box, and Marisol’s efforts should encourage readers to do just that.
