Hugo + Miles in Ive Painted Everything! By Scott Magoon
Hugo, the elephant, is an artist. One day he realizes that he has painted EVERYTHING. He is completely devoid of inspiration. His best friend, Miles, the dog, has a wonderful idea - a trip to Paris - and drags his friend on a adventure. Soon Hugo is discovering ideas everywhere. I love that this book is about gleaning inspiration from travel, as we do this so much ourselves. Yet, what I love most is the encouragement to look at things from different angles. Try making things bigger and smaller. Look at things from above. Use different materials. This book embraces the creative process and the diversity of art. Sweet, quirky characters and soft, amusing illustrations this is an enjoyable read.
