CLAYMATES by Dev Petty is a picture book telling the story of two friends made of clay.

After the art studio closes for the day, the artist’s clay characters come to life. The bright colored photographs of the clay characters contributes to the appeal of the story.

Librarians will find this adorable picture book to be popular among primary aged children. It would also provide a fun introduction to an art or claymation project.

This book follows two clay balls as they get shaped into a wolf and an owl. The wolf discovers that they can reshape themselves into anything they want and tells the owl to do the same. The owl is hesitant at first, but then tries and realizes that it is. The two lumps of clay shape themselves into an elephant, and alien, a dinosaur, a peanut, octopus, seal, and much more. Eventually the artist comes back and shapes them back into two clay lumps and they start all over again This book has a central message of never leaving someone behind and never giving up. ( )
