Max and Arthur are best friends who both want to make art. Arthur is an accomplished painter; Max is a beginner. Max's first attempt at using a paintbrush sends the two friends on a whirlwind adventure with paints, pastels and pencils, which turn out to have unexpected pitfalls. Heavily influenced by surrealist Salvador Dali, Wiesner has crafted a fascinating story about friendship, creativity and the mysterious place where these two forces meet.
From three-time Caldecott medalist David Wiesner, a ground-breaking picture book about friendship and art.

"A truly original picture-book, celebrating the transformative potential of art and friendship." * Irish Times, Robert Dunbar * "It just seems to dig a little deeper than many other picture books. A hint of Salvador Dali to the backdrops." * Teach Primary Magazine * "Beautifully colourful and humorous, with a wise message." * The School Librarian * "Artwork is wonderful. Lots of humour. Lovely story to share repeatedly." * Bookbag * "Art and Max is the perfect antidote to routine and regulation. A very special book." -- Jake Hope * The Bookseller *
