Quotes about the books.

If Picasso Were a Fish.
"Truly brilliant work!" I will be getting this one for my own children. I could not think of a better way to set a child's imagination into flight! A brilliant piece.
Jamie Townsend Author

If I Had a Gift
"A Positive Message in a Funny Package" I recently read this story to my daycare class and found the children to be quite responsive to both the artwork and the message hidden within. A nice idea well executed!
Mike Lawrence Author/Illustrator

"Abstracts: Minimalist Scribblings shows children of all ages how simple lines can illustrate intriguing ideas. What a gem of a book!”
Anna Kichorowsky Manager of Family & Community Programs Austin Museum of Art-Downtown
