Description of this Book

Harold and the Purple Crayon meets Tom and Jerry in this sweet and funny picture book about a boy and girl who must balance their creativity and figure out how to cooperate after their drawings come to life. When Sam starts drawing a super cool velociraptor, Eva decides to join in. But Sam isn't too happy about the collaboration. Soon Eva and Sam are locked in an epic creative clash, bringing to life everything from superhero marmots to exploding confetti. But when their masterpieces turn to mayhem will Sam stay stubbornly solo or will he realize that sometimes the best work comes from teamwork?

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review The kids themselves, rendered in black and white, sparkle....When their mural becomes frantic and out of hand, the kids escape in a way that Crockett Johnson's Harold would be proud of. Expressive, high-spirited one-upkidship via artwork on walls--there's nothing wrong with that. --Kirkus Reviews August 1, 2017 Ohi (Where Are My Books?) celebrates creativity and cooperation in this story of two young artists, Sam and Eva, who don't see eye to eye...and although the final pages tease another potential argument, readers will finish the book confident that these two will work through their creative differences once again.--Publisher's Weekly August 14, 2017
