What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

Praise for Blue Rider :

"Valério excels at conveying the pure joy of color and form and, not incidentally, the ability of art and books to lift us up and away." Kirkus , STARRED REVIEW

"It’s a dazzling vision of the way art transcends the everyday." Publisher's Weekly , STARRED REVIEW

"Looking at art doesn’t always stir the soul, but when it does the sensation can be so powerful as to feel like a subsuming rapture. Geraldo Valério manages to replicate this dizzying and rare experience inBlue Rider." — Wall Street Journal

"[A] sumptuous wordless tale …. From the start, the use of color is so sophisticated you can almost hear it …" — New York Times

"Here is a tribute to art, to books, and to the power of the imagination." — Booklist

Praise for Turn On the Night , another wordless picture book by Geraldo Valério:

“A giddy sense of possibility permeates this enchanting wordless story.” Publishers Weekly , STARRED REVIEW

“It is hard to choose a favorite among the illustrations, which use composition, form, and color to full advantage to animate the three animals and spin a magical tale. More than a bedtime story: a treat from a masterful artist.” Kirkus , STARRED REVIEW

“Valério’s stylized imagery … grounds the narrative with a folk-like simplicity, which contrasts with the story’s abstracted, supernatural sweep.” Horn Book , STARRED REVIEW
