Description
Aldo Zelnick is the star of a new comic novel series for children. Ten-year-old Aldo lives with his family in Colorado. He's not athletic like his older brother, he's not a rock hound like his best friend, but he does like bacon. And when his artist grandmother, Goosy, gives him a sketchbook to "record all his artsy-fartsy ideas" during summer vacation, it turns out Aldo is a pretty good cartoonist. In addition to an engaging cartoon story, Artsy-Fartsy includes an illustrated glossary of fun A words used throughout the book, such as absurd, abominable, and audacious. "I am so impressed with Artsy-Fartsy! It is genuinely funny, entertaining, and educational. The personalities of even the minor characters are developed well, and the plot lines all come to satisfying conclusions in an artful way." - Leslie Patterson, author and former children's librarian
