Ish (Creatrilogy) Kindle Edition
Copyright © American Library Association. All rights reserved --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
—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.
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.
A lovely tale. . . . Told in spare prose with Reynolds' signature line drawings in watercolor, ink, and tea, ISH will encourage other little artists.
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.

As an illustration student I adored this book as soon as I discovered it! It's a unique story for kids and adults alike, giving out a wonderful message that we should all remember in my humble opinion.
It’s a nice book for children and the moral of the story is that things don’t have to be done perfectly which I liked as children can often get hung up on things when they are learning.
Somehow I am not impressed, maybe it's not suitable for my reading. The baby seems taking it fine.
