Through harmony and rhythm, resonance and pitch, Ann Rand inspires readers to listen to the tuneful play of her text as
it sings off each page. Illustrated with graphic designer Paul Rand's colorful, witty artwork, Sparkle and Spin is a
children's classic (now happily available again through Chronicle Books) that reveals to young readers the power and
music in the words they use every day.
"Paul Rand did not set out to create classic children's books, he simply wanted to make pictures that were playful. Like
the alchemist of old, he transformed unlikely abstract forms into icons that inspired children and adultsand laid the
foundation for two books that have indeed become children's classics."
Steven Heller, author of Paul Rand
