Born in Baltimore, Aaron Becker moved to California to attend Pomona College where he scored his first illustration job designing t-shirts for his water polo team. Since then, he's traveled to Kenya, Japan, Sweden, and Tahiti backpacking around while looking for good things to eat and feeding his imagination. He now lives with his family in Amherst, MA where he's busy at work on his next book project.

A wordless picture book of time-lapse images copies Robert Crumb's classic "A Short History of America" cartoon to give the history of a bend in the river and the tree that sits next to it on a fantasy world with some advances and setbacks similar to the ones in our world.

Some of the time jumps were easier to follow than others, but I suppose the reader can make up any story they want to fill in the gaps left by the author. I just didn't find myself engaged enough to want to bother.

When a lonely girl finds a red crayon on her bedroom floor, she draws a door on her wall and escapes into a world of magical adventure. Richly drawn illustrations follow her on her journey, as she uses her crayon to escape danger and ultimately find friendship. A beautiful wordless picture book with enough substance to enchant older readers. I absolutely loved it!

"Only if we understand, can we care.
Only if we care, will we help.
Only if we help, shall all be saved." --Jane Goodall

A tall yellow wind-powered robot rescues wild animals from rising waters, sending a message in a small boat and constructing a full-size boat - an ark? - to carry them all. The robot, elephants, giraffes, rhinos, and zebras sail under starry sky and through a storm, washing up on some low-lying islands, where another robot - equally tall, purple, and solar-powered - descends in a hot air balloon and brings everyone to a large, green island.… (mais)
