Yasmin's Hammer

By PaperTigers

Doug Chayka’s luminous oil paintings’ palette, warm with oranges, browns, and yellows, vividly channels the ups and downs of the emotions marking this struggle: excitement, sadness, exhaustion, determination, hope, joy, love and success. . . .While the geographic setting of Yasmin’s Hammer may be far from many readers, Yasmin’s fierce love of family, her belief in the power of books, and her dogged conviction that her struggle will be worthwhile will speak across seas and cultures. —PaperTigers
