A playful introduction to the designs of Charles and Ray Eames by Geisel-winning creator James Yang.

Charles was an architect. Ray was a painter. Together they made the perfect team. By using structure, shape, and color, they knew they could transform anything. And because they saw problem-solving as an adventure, they were able to incorporate playfulness into everything they designed.

Geisel Award-winning author and illustrator James Yang has created an exuberant story about Charles and Ray Eames, two of the most iconic designers of the Mid-century modern design movement, which will inspire readers to dream up new ways to see the world around them.

"Covering an art style seldom found in books for this age group, award-winning Yang's latest will be a welcome addition where art and design books are popular." --Booklist

"Young readers may not have the context to recognize how beautifully Yang tips his hat to mid-century-modern design, but they will come away with a sense of how exhilarating it can be to make something new--and with whetted appetites for discovering more." --Publishers Weekly
