Review quote

"Neubecker s colorfulillustrations capture the energy with which Keith [Haring] lived his life, and cleverly integrate some of the artist soriginal works...Always upbeat, this story is acelebration of art and life."

Haring's work pops; Neubecker's compositions and enthusiastic crowd scenes do it wonderful credit."
