Georgia's Terrific, Colorific Experiment (Hardcover)
Art meets science in this story of Georgia, the budding scientist trying to find her niche in a family of creative, gifted artists. Persico’s words are charming, and her pictures are lush and deep. The swirls of purples, blues, and other colors are a feast for the eyes, and each page invites one to sit and visit for a while so as not to miss anything. The end is sweet, and reinforces the lesson that it’s possible to follow your own dreams while supporting the endeavors of others. -Alex— From Spring Booknotes 2019
