Coppernickel Goes Mondrian (public library) by Dutch artist Wouter van Reek is an absolute treasure from my friends at Enchanted Lion Books, who previously gave us Albertine's Little Bird, Blexbolex's gems, and the charming Bear Despair. The story introduces Van Reek's famous Coppernickel character – a quirky and endearing flightless bird in a red cape – and his dog Tungsten to Mr. Quickstep and his dog Foxtrot. Together, they embark upon a quest for the future, navigating Mondrian's signature grids of primary colors as they make sense of the portal from reality to abstraction and back again, teaching young readers – and reminding those of us who have grown out of believing – that the road between what we dream up to what we actually experience is paved with nothing more and nothing less than self-transformation.
