Principles of Uncertainty

Title: Principles of Uncertainty
By: Maira Kalman

Maira Kalman is a wonderful whimsical artist who has drawn many colorful covers for the New Yorker and has written several slightly wacky delightful children's books including Ooh-La-La (Max in Love), Smartypants, and Fireboat, an excellent 9-11 children's book. You don't have to have seen her art or read her books to enjoy Principles of Uncertainty. This book is a thoughtful, poignant, serious combination of drawings and reflections about living a life...and yes...she will make you laugh. This is a lovely catalyst for your own musings or your own journal entries. Don't miss it.
