Arthur Geisert’s unique and exquisite etchings have been widely praised and exhibited at the Chicago Institute of Art, among other museums. His work is regularly selected for the Society of Illustrators’, annual Original Art exhibition, and his illustrations are now being collected by the Dubuque Museum of Art. He lives in a converted bank in Bernard, Iowa.From School Library Journal :
PreSchool-Grade 1-- Geisert's comical piglets are back for another nearly wordless adventure. This time it's a sunrise romp into the cornfield (via conveyor shute) to sneak some of their favorite crop. Then, with an angry mama hot on their trail, they swim to a tiny island in the stream, where they pig out on the contraband ears. Wise to their antics now, a weary mother discourages a return trip to the field and routes her capricious offspring home. Throughout, the only word uttered (but repeatedly, with various inflections denoted by the size of the type and its arrangement on the page) is "oink." Geisert's black on pale gray etchings (with pink-tinted pigs) range from two per page to two-page spreads--all of them finely detailed and nicely formatted. Those who enjoyed Oink (Houghton, 1991) will, no doubt, relish this short adventure as well. --Susan Scheps, Shaker Heights Public Library, OH
