That's How I See Things by Gita Wolf

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Siena Baba is a happy artist with a strange way of seeing the world—and an even stranger way of painting it. People say his pictures look like nothing they know, but that doesn’t bother him. Until one day, he starts to paint an extraordinary set of ani-mals who don’t seem to appreciate just how fantastic they are . . .

Bhajju Shyam, the renowned Gond tribal artist from India, illustrates this humorous and profound tale about the power of art and the imagination.
