Patrick McDonnell的漫畫Mutts被史努比的創造者Charles Schulz譽為 "one of best comic strips of all time."
小J看著 "A picture is worth a thousand words" 後面那個跨頁的那一大幅Art的作品大呼：我真的看到了他剛剛畫的東西。我愣了一下，他又解釋，Art前面幾頁畫的都西都在這裡面。我仔細一看，果然前幾個頁面裡的星星、螺旋、煙火、汽車、房子等所有的元素都在這張畫裡。
Patrick 在Daily Cartoonist裡有一段自述如下：
" 'Art' is about a little kid who likes to draw and makes messes and I think it’s pretty autobiographical,” he says by phone from his New Jersey studio. “It’s just the joy of making art, which I do every day, and something I’ve been doing since I was Art’s age. (The book) uses the primaries, red, yellow and blue, and my desk and my clothes — and probably myself — were red, yellow and blue for a good week. I actually took a photograph of my desk before I cleaned it because it looked sort of like one of Art’s drawings — splotches all over the place.”
(To help promote the book, Patrick is having a ART Coloring Contest (ends April 28, 2006). See his web site for details.)
在Amazon中該書的頁面上說買這本書的人同時也會買Peter REYNOLDS的《The Dot》。
只是我不懂，為什麼這兩本書的Age都是標 4~8 歲呢？
