In his first children’s book, Viva, whose artwork has appeared on the cover of the New Yorker and in many other publications, has accomplished an impressive feat. He’s delivered a stylish picture book that appeals to both kid and adult sensibilities. The retro-style graphic illustrations (on matte paper with black, red, yellow and blue as his colors) are sophisticated without losing their kid appeal. I, for one, am glad I went along for the ride!
