“Paul Meets Bernadette”
Paul swims around and around in big circles and little circles. He swims to the left and to the right. He swims up and down, down and up until…
…Bernadette drops in and shows Paul a world filled with so many interesting things.
“Do you see those tall buildings over there?” says Bernadette.
Textured oil paintings beautifully illustrate the mundane changing into something unusual.
This book promotes originality, perspective, imagination, and flexible thinking.
