“Go Ahead” Poem Picture Book 2013
Book Trailer:  Go Ahead, Be A Monster, But Don’t Forget To Smile
©2013 Alex Mitchell
From the start of Alex Mitchell’s book, “Go Ahead, Be A Monster, But Don’t Forget To Smile,” she dares her readers to feel angry, annoyed, impatient, and needy, just like her outrageous monsters.  Written with the conviction that although emotions may overwhelm us, they do not define us, the author then slowly encourages her readers to look deeper and recognize their true miraculous nature.  From her unique perspective of life as an artist, this bilingual poem picture book is a spirited invitation to smile and remember who we are deep down inside no matter what we’re feeling.

In the book’s closing commentary the author reveals her personal thoughts about being an artist, exploring monsters, and feeling alive.  And although she had a young audience in mind when writing this book, its creative spirit, style, and timeless message are alluring to all ages.  All the pages are reproduced from the artist’s hand-painted originals.  A complete translation into Spanish is included.
