Surprise by Mies Van Hout Book Review

Surprise by Mies Van Hout
Publisher: Lemniscaat USA
Release Date: April 1, 2014

In this one-word-per-page picture book, Mies Van Hout creates a world of color of beauty. The simple idea of a bird dreaming of becoming a parent and the fruition of that dream is mesmerizingly simple and yet contrasts against the complex subjects of dreams, love, listening, and letting go. The oil pastels on the black canvas are striking and held the interest of my 2 year old nephew very well.
