Editorial Reviews

author of Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking - Susan Cain
"Grant Snider's work delivers introspection, humor, and inspiration in visually stunning drawings. They are a colorful look into the creative process—from the moments of quiet contemplation to the days of frenzied desperation."
Newbery Medal Winner for Moon Over Manifest and the Printz Honor for Navigating Early - Clare Vanderpool
"Grant Snider’s The Shape of Ideas is a creative kaleidoscope of humor, insight, and truth. An inventive window into the creative experience filled with hope and encouragement for daydreamers and doodlers, sketchers and scribblers, inventors, explorers, and spinners of yarns."
