Review

This illustrated children's book from Grant Maxwell and his mother-in-law, Susan Edwards, will melt your heart! The Walk was written by Grant for his toddler son and illustrated by Susan for her grandson. The book, an engaging fantasy, is a Godsend at naps and bedtime. . . . The Walk is one of those special children's books that you will enjoy reading just as your little one will love hearing the comforting words and seeing the wonderful illustrations over and over again.

Very basic children's book, but slows you down and pulls you along with the repetitive, exploratory text. Pictures were pleasant as well (water color style). This book has worked well when putting sleepy children to bed. As an adult, I don't mind reading and re-reading this one at all.

This was a delightfully written book. My grandsons were delighted with Mason's walk and then surprised and wondered if it was really a dream. The illustrations were beautiful. They were simple and very appealing to children and adults alike. The author and illustrator are very talented.

My son laughs though the book because it repeats itself and he thinks I'm being silly. But he likes it. Not sure it helps him fall asleep. Plus he thinks the dogs are so funny because they are all scraggly looking and thinks they need a bath..

Susan illustrated a coloring book for Children visiting St. Thomas many years ago when we first met. She is one of the most educated, experienced and versatile artists I know. Susan paints while transversing Europe by foot, she paints colorful portraits of the characters she meets in people and animals. Her work and spiritual life is so developed, Susan can express
a mood or feeling in watercolor with dashing bright free strokes against easy washes. This gift of interpretation elicits a comfortable response, illustrates the minds image at the same time leaving plenty of space for the imagination. Grant is an educated musician with his doctorate in English. The story is a sensitive narrative that brings full circle reality to dream state and back to reality. It is this sequence Grant rythmacally weaves that allows a young persons mind to ease as they cope with the unknown and sometimes fear filled transition to the state of sleep. In the publishing world it is advised the author and illustrator do not meet. My experience underscores this truth. However when you have a professional writer and artist in the same family, loving the same child, neither separation nor collaboration is necessary, it simply bloomed like flowers in a field.
