Patrick McDonnell the creator of the Mutts comic strip, has illustrated for the New York Times, Sports Illustrated, Forbes, Time, Parents and other publications. He has scored a direct hit with his children's book Art.

Art, a little boy, creates his art freely and with creative flare in Art. Art draws lines in the form of zigs and zags, scribbles that squiggle and dots in many colors and sizes. He plops splotches and blotches on the page, then with a flourish creates the curliest cue.

His inspiration is the paper and his mind and from there he doodles and creates his masterpieces. Exhausted he falls fast asleep and when he awakens, all those masterpieces have been carefully hung on the refrigerator by his mother.

Armchair Interviews says: Art is a delightful character that exudes personality and comes alive as he madly creates his art. Children will love the book Art.
