Review:
Exulting in manic explosions of typefaces and graphics and color, and attacking the page from all sides at once, Henrik Drescher is a pioneer in book illustration. Here, as stand-in for all children who take exception to string beans and cheese souffle, Drescher's hero, Mo, revels in mad, anarchic dreams of power, till, at book's end, there's a restoration of domestic tranquility.
