Product description

From Booklist

PreS-Gr. 2. Reynolds' previous book, The Dot (see Top 10 Arts Books for Youth on p.497), imparted an important message to kids about the various ways in which art can be defined. This has a similar message, but unlike the character in The Dot, who doesn't believe she can draw, Ramon loves to draw. In fact, he draws wherever he can, even on the toilet. But after his older brother laughs at his work, Ramon loses confidence; none of his drawings look right to him anymore. He's about to quit drawing when his sister shows him that she has kept all his crumpled efforts. Now he understands that though he doesn't draw exact replicas (his trees are only "tree-ish"), the response his art engenders is what matters. It's likely that fewer children will identify with Ramon than with the girl in the previous book, but this certainly has a strong message, and the overriding theme about creativity versus exactitude will resonate with many. The line-and-color artwork is simple, but it has great emotion and warmth. Kids will respond to that, too. Ilene Cooper

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.

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
