School Library Journal - 06/01/2016 PreS-Gr 2—Louise and her younger brother Art are excited to meet their new neighbor. Louise gathers all of her art supplies and knocks on the door. "Do you like art?" she asks. Andie, who could pass for Andy Warhol's kid sister, replies, "Like art? I LOVE it!" The two girls spend the day happily drawing together until one of their pictures is accidentally ripped in half. Neither girl wants their friendship to come to an end over artistic differences, so they find a way to turn a mistake into a masterpiece, something all good artists know how to do. The pencil and digital illustrations reference Warhol's style of art, and the black cat from Light's Louise Loves Art befriends the neighbor's unusual-looking dog, Bacon. VERDICT This is a clever and fun story about making and mending a friendship through artwork, perfect for one-on-one reading or sharing at storytime.—Tanya Boudreau, Cold Lake Public Library, AB, Canada - Copyright 2016 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
