Critics Are Saying About Bob Staake, Author and Illustrator of
"The Red Lemon":
illustrations (are) a stylistic collision of Russian constructivism
and pop art, (and) explode with energy playing off of basic geometric
shapes and angles and swimming in saturated colors."
(picture books) are notable for the sophistication of their graphic
design. Simple enough to hold the attention of toddlers, these
colorful, computer-enhanced images are also visually interesting
enough to please preschoolers and parents as well."
modern, crisp illustrations ... practically jump off the page."
art is deceptive -- it looks simple, but one still finds new
things in the illustrations after over a hundred readings."
