Editorial Reviews

ISH . . . encourages readers to see the world anew.
—School Library Journal, starred review

Reynold's minimalist pen-and-ink illustrations feature subtle washes of watercolor and ample splashes of emotion and humor. A tidy lesson in the importance of thinking — or drawing — outside the box and believing in one's own abilities despite others' reactions.
—Publishers Weekly

The overriding theme about creativity versus exactitude will resonate with many. The line-and-clor artwork is simple, but it has great emotion and warmth. Kids will resond to that, too.
—Booklist

A lovely tale. . . . Told in spare prose with Reynolds' signature line drawings in watercolor, ink, and tea, ISH will encourage other little artists.
—Kirkus Reviews

Certain to bolster self-esteem and encourage children to follow their creative impulses.
—Scholastic Parent & Child

Adults as well as children will want to linger over the pages.
—Houston Chronicle
