    "One eye was bigger than the other. That was a mistake. The weird cat-cow-frog thing? Well, it made an excellent bush. And the inky smudges . . . they look as though 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 omistakeso 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."

    Gleebooks review:
    Starting with a small ink blot, which is turned into an eye, and then another eye, Corinna Luyken takes the reader on a visual journey through The Book of Mistakes, as the images grow and transform with each page. Using the negative space, a very limited palette, and a satisfyingly circular story, she has created an entertaining, whimsical example of how mistakes are part of the artistic process. This is a highly original book. ($30, HB) Louise
