Award-winning author and illustrator Charise Mericle Harper creates a laugh-out-loud picture book about making something out of nothing, a companion title to I Cannot Draw a Horse.
The Horse wants a bicycle.
A bicycle is hard to draw.
The Book cannot draw a bicycle.
But the Book CAN draw shapes.
Can the Horse and the Cat build a bicycle from shapes? Or will their dreams end in pieces?
Praise for I CANNOT DRAW A HORSE
“Creative an loaded with humor, this story will have kids giggling in seconds and trying their hand at drawing a horse—or at least a gumdrop.” —Booklist (starred review)
“Part Ed Emberley, with a dash of Pigeon, and entirely meta.” —Kirkus Reviews
“Harper’s illustrations make so much of so little, using a very limited palette and simple shapes, inviting readers into an artist’s notebook. With a little imagination and some paper, ‘nothing’ can become quite something. —Horn Book Magazine
“An easy-to-read text with exclamatory speech bubbles and pictorial antics will tickle funny bones in this off-kilter circular story.” —School Library Journal
