About the Author

Isol is an illustrator, cartoonist, graphic artist, writer, singer and composer. She was born in 1972 and lives and works in Argentina. For her contributions to children's and young adult literature she won the Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award from the Swedish Arts Council in 2013. In her acceptance speech, Isol said many wonderful things. Here is one: "What reader could be more demanding than a child? Children have a lot of things to discover and I'd better be on their high level in order to satisfy their huge capacity for curiosity. I get my inspiration from what's wild, from what's ridiculous, from that independence of culture that children enjoy."

Reviews

"A spontaneous burst of visual meaning" Maria Popova, Brain Pickings "Square pages and lavishly thick paper contribute to this immensely pleasing reading experience as well, nudging readers to run fingers across the beguiling matte illustrations as they revel in deciphering them." STARRED REVIEW, Kirkus Reviews "With understated poetry and humor, Isol challenges readers to bring their own interpretations to each composition." STARRED REVIEW, Publishers Weekly "The gloriously ambiguous alphabet book from Isol combines clever phrases with intriguing imagery, allowing readers to interpret and reinterpret thousands of scenarios. Alphabet books have never been so magical." Politics and Prose "The book is gorgeously, meticulously designed from start to finish, with a charmingly rough simplicity achieved through crayon-like hand-lettering, blocky collages, intriguing textures and inky, kinetic brushstrokes. [...] Thought-provoking and deliciously odd." Shelf awareness "there are whole, imagined universes conjured on each page. Some read like scenes from longer stories. Others could be part of a dream or a secret, overheard." -- Nicole Lamy, The Boston Globe
