Written by Vikky Van Sickle

Animal-friendly street art is popping up all over the city, but who is creating these masterpieces?

There is no explanation, only a name: Anonymouse.

This clever tale mixes street art, animals and gorgeous illustrations to create a meditation on how art can uplift any creature’s spirit — human or animal — when it speaks directly to them.

Press review

Banksy might be flattered by this book, but he probably wouldnt admit it in public.”

Kirkus Reviews 


“A thoroughly original fable about arts revitalizing power, and the capacity of all living things to yearn for and create joy.”

Publishers Weekly


As digitally drawn by Italian illustrator Anna Pirolli, Anonymouses striking and funny acts of guerrilla art offer encouragement to other urban-dwelling animals … [VanSickle] has created a charming and clever rodent rebel whose work, she writes, always made the animals of the city think.Anonymouse is a poetic and visually witty paean to the power of creativity and the ability of art to inspire and unite us.”

“The play on words may seem obvious, but the book is not. The fleeting creature who brings beauty and joy to everyone, creating in improbable places, illustrates for kids how art can pop up anywhere.”
