After a boy finds a strange pink creature in his dress-up box, he goes on a quest to find out what to call his new friend, but is dissatisfied with every answer he receives. Bold black lines divide a whimsical palette of green, purple, rust, and neon pink in illustrations bereft of color blending, evoking the flat, layered sensibility of a mural that depicts his epic journey. The boy who knew nothing reminds us all there’s no shame in a “silly” question.
