Description:

What good can a splash of color do in a community of gray? As Mira and her neighbors discover, more than you might ever imagine! Based on the true story of the Urban Art Trail in San Diego, California, Maybe Something Beautiful reveals how art can inspire transformation-and how even the smallest artists can accomplish something big. Pick up a paintbrush and join the celebration!

Quotes:

Lopez's illustrations dominate the landscape of the book and depict the characters' movements in a painterly style. Warm colors portray the community's efforts to brighten their neighborhood and contrast with the more muted tones used to depict the desolate cityscape. The illustrations are rendered with acrylic paints on wood, along with digital tools to layer photos and other objects to create Mira's neighborhood...the heartwarming story of the powerful influence of art., School Library Journal

An inspiring and wistful message wrapped up in a subtle, thoughtful narrative and lively, beautiful art: simply superb., Kirkus

...Campoy and Howell deliver a clear, uplifting message about the power of art to revitalize people and their surroundings., Publishers Weekly

This empowering story of community engagement might inspire kids to get involved in their own neighborhoods., Booklist

Narrator Adriana Sananes delights in the imagination and hope of young Mira...Sananes's enthusiasm is evident; Mira's outbursts of joy, the paintbrush man's musings on the wall's possibilities, and even a policeman come through as vivid characters. Accompanying music provides bursts of merengue, cha-cha, and salsa as neighbors come together to paint. An interview with the authors in which they explain the origins of the Urban Art Trail in the East Village of San Diego concludes the production., AudioFile Magazine
