Good attitudecanchase away the blues at any age!Now in aboard book format for more rainy day reading. “
Absolutely charming. A little boy and an old man are both out in the rain, but their perspectives and attitudes are markedly different. The illustrations are colorful and fun, and the story concept is inventive. This little gem of a book is a reminder that the world looks a little brighter when viewed through eyes filled with wonder.
Christian Robinson was born in Hollywood, California, in 1986. He grew up in a small one bedroom apartment with his brother, two cousins, aunt, and grandmother. Drawing became a way to make space for himself and to create the kind of world he wanted to see. He studied animation at The California Institute of the Arts and would later work with the Sesame Street Workshop and Pixar Animation Studios before becoming an illustrator of books for children. His books include Gaston and Antoinette, written by Kelly DiPucchio, and the #1 New York Times bestseller Last Stop on Market Street, written by Matt de la Peña, which was awarded the Caldecott Honor, the Coretta Scott King Illustrator Honor, and the Newbery Medal. He presently lives in Northern California with his rescue greyhound Baldwin and several houseplants. He looks forward to one day seeing the Aurora Borealis. Visit him online at TheArtofFun.com.
