Maybe Something Beautiful: How Art Transformed a Neighborhood - F. Isabel Campoy, Theresa Howell, Rafael Lopez

One day, a young artist named Mira meets a muralist, and alongside their neighbors they transform the “heart of a grey city” into Maybe Something Beautiful (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, $16.99). It just so happens that Rafael López, the illustrator of this true story about San Diego’s Urban Art Trail, is the very same muralist whose bright and colorful work inspired this book. F. Isabel Campoy and Theresa Howell tell the story of a neighborhood transformed by joyous collaboration. López uses vibrant acrylics with collaged patterning to create both the cityscape and characters with plenty of personality. After the magical conclusion, the endnotes describe in more detail the true story that inspired this amazing book. Ages 4-8.
