Description


Zoom meets *Beautiful Oops!* in this memorable picture book debut about the creative process, and the way in which "mistakes" can blossom into inspiration

One eye was bigger than the other.  That was a mistake.
The weird  frog-cat-cow thing? It made an excellent bush.
And the inky smudges… they look as if they were always meant to be leaves floating gently across the sky.

As one artist incorporates accidental splotches, spots, and misshapen things into her art, she transforms her piece in quirky and unexpected ways, taking readers on a journey through her process. Told in minimal, playful text, this story shows readers that even the biggest “mistakes” can be the source of the brightest ideas—and that, at the end of the day, we are all works in progress, too.

Fans of Peter Reynolds’s *Ish* and Patrick McDonnell’s *A Perfectly Messed-Up Story* will love the funny, poignant, completely unique storytelling of *The Book of Mistakes*. And, like *Oh, The Places You’ll Go!*, it makes the perfect graduation gift, encouraging readers to have a positive outlook as they learn to face life’s obstacles.
