The Skunk appears in New York Times Book Review

Books & Art

Patrick McDonnell’s newest picture book, The Skunk, written by Mac Barnett and illustrated by the MUTTS creator himself, was featured in last Sunday’s New York Times Book Review. Bruce Hardy calls the book, “surprising and subversive in all the best ways.”

But our favorite quote about Patrick’s drawing was this:

“The great Patrick McDonnell’s drawings are, as always, perfect down to the last scratchy line, and ‘The Skunk’s’ endpapers, whether the work of McDonnell or the book’s designer, encapsulate the story with brilliant economy. I’d like to think they’ll inspire at least one child to become a graphic ­designer.”
