Whale Shines: An Artistic Tale

(3) K-3 Sullenly carrying a sign for the upcoming art show, Whale is envious of the others' projects (e.g., ink-producing Octopus's painting) but lacks the inspiration and confidence ("I'm just in advertising") to give art a go himself. Then, with some encouragement from an unlikely source, a brilliant idea is born. A thoughtful celebration of creativity marked by Robinson's clever storytelling, textually and visually.
