Additional Notes

From The Publisher*The city is cracking down on graffiti and guerilla art. Between that and cutbacks to the local art gallery it seems like nothing is safe. But Oswald, masquerading as a graffiti artist known as The Wiz, is fighting back-by painting elaborate murals in public places and planting art in the galleries, and then by taking on the mayor himself. As the fight escalates and the stakes become higher, Oswald gets in deeper than he meant to and needs to rely on his friends to get him out of his latest mess.

Review Quote*"Combines everyday, likeable characters in a contemporary setting with a fast-paced mystery. Despite the novel's brevity, Walters succeeds in creating believable characters with whom readers can readily identify. In addition to these winning elements, Walters includes engaging discussions on art history, what people consider art, and freedom of expression...Great food for thought!...Highly Recommended."
Review Quote*"A quick, light read; heavy on dialogue and action to keep the reader moving and the reluctant reader hooked."
Review Quote*"Inspired by the experiences of areal Toronto tagger who tacks on a testimonial of his own, Walters' tale makes a refreshing change of pace from the sports- or personal-crisis-driven stories often aimed at unenthusiastic or less able older readers."
Review Quote*"The issues discussed are relevant to today's teens...This novel fills a need for diverse high school readers."
