The Extraordinary Mr. Qwerty
by Karla Strambini


I picked this up because the title and the cover art drew me to it at the library. It's a nice book about creativity and being original/going against the grain. Norman Qwerty brings his ideas to the world (whether the world realizes it wants them or not). There's a little more to the story than a quick read shows--you have to look at the illustrations for the full picture. The illustrations are detailed and beautiful, alluding to invention sketches, only extremely detailed and quirky. I would definitely have wanted to pick this up for the art alone.

Definitely a book that honors and encourages creativity!
