I still don't who Maira Kalman is, but I can say without a doubt that this is a book worth reading.
I put that word in quotes, because while most of her past books are classified as for children, they certainly go far beyond that audience in their appeal.
I love this book as it reflects the author's sensibility of embracing every bit of life that catches her eye and warms her heart.
