New Review: Magritte’s Marvelous Hat
I am so in awe of D.B. Johnson. He wrote the whole series of Henry books about Henry David Thoreau (as a bear), and a very cool book about M.C. Escher, and his illustrations have such a cool modern quality that isn’t all cute bunnies wearing bows and rolling in the clover. Which I appreciate.
His new book, Magritte’s Marvelous Hat is, well, astoundingly good. And very cool. And extremely innovative.
And all of this is leading up to me telling you that my review today on Brain Burps makes me sound a bit like my 12-year-old self explaining why I think Shaun Cassidy is the cutest. I’m sort of breathlessly excited about this book. You know what? I don’t care. So I get breathlessly excited about books? There are worse things to get all worked up about.
