Title: What If...
Bookseller: Alexis

For the artist in us all, this book reminds us that our creativity is limitless and unique. This author takes us on an imaginative, linguistically rhythmic, mystically illustrated journey where we discover that even without her pencil and her paint, the main character still has her imagination. This, my friend, is an invaluable tool that can transform a simple pile of dirt into a solar system or a long day behind a computer into an intricate novel. This book is a great reminder of what's possible and serves as a reminder and an inspiration for artists of all ages.
