Art & Max

They say a picture is worth a thousand words.   David Wiesner proves this time and time again with his wordless (or word-minimal in this case) picture books.  Art and Max are lizards who are painters...but two very different types of painters.  When Max paints Art (literally) and attempts to reverse the damage, Art nearly disappears all-together.  Max must work to re-create Art using various media.  Art & Max is brilliantly colorful and a delightful story to read.
