Anonymouse by Vikki VanSickle & Anna Pirolli

Reviewed by Melissa Beck (Library Staff)

This vibrant and thought-provoking new picture book expertly reveals how art can transform how we see and think about everyday places and objects. In it, a mouse equivalent of Banksy is employing neon paint and his imagination across the city to make his fellow animals laugh, think, and feel inspired.

The element that first attracted my attention was the color palette–an amazing blend of neutral browns alarmingly contrasted by NEON PINK (definitely all caps). But everything from Anonymouse’s clever signature tag (a capital A with whiskers and ears) to the humor (I laughed out loud at the raccoons–you’ll see) is brilliant. A perfect treat for adults and children alike.
