Someone is transforming the city with some unusual art, and the city residents have taken notice—not the people, but the animals. A city mouse and a colony of bats, the birds and dogs, raccoons and squirrels, and even the ants. This new street art is everywhere, making all the city animals think about their environment in a new way. The only clue is a name: Anonymouse. Then, one day, there is no further sign of Anonymouse, and the city animals are worried. “After all, the city can be dangerous for animals.”
Vikki VanSickle’s charming and mysterious Anonymouse finds beauty in the crowded, industrial skyline as well as in the sewers and the littered streets below. Anna Pirolli’s sandy-colored tones and dark browns highlight Anonymouse’s bright pink creations, which pop off the page. She also adds humorous details, such as Batman in pink polka dot boxers. With a nod to Banksy, VanSickle gives young readers some beautiful themes to ponder. It’s a fun story about how art can inspire and unite and, sometimes, even change our perspective on the world.
