Summary:  Although not everyone in her neighborhood loves graffiti, this girl sees it as beautiful art decorating the walls and trains of her community.  Some people complain about it, while others are too busy to notice it.  In the park, there’s a big block party, and suddenly the art comes to life and joins in the celebration.  Everyone boogies away except the girl, a friend, and their dog, who shake up some cans of spray paint and get busy creating art.  40 pages; ages 3-8.

Pros:  A rollicking rhyming book that celebrates the art and life of an urban neighborhood.

Cons:  I didn’t really understand the ending.
