From the Publisher
The first book in Peter H. Reynolds's Creatrilogy
'In this engaging, inspiring tale, Reynolds (illustrator of the Judy Moody series) demonstrates the power of a little encouragement. Reynolds pulls off exactly what his young heroine does, creating an impressive work from deceptively simple beginnings.'
– Publishers Week'y (starred review)
The third book in Peter H. Reynolds' Creatrilogy
'Besides encouraging children to paint what they actually see rather than repeating the visual conventions they’ve learned, this original offering frames an apparent problem as a challenge with a simple solution. This fresh, whimsical picture book encourages the artist and the creative thinker in every child.'

It’s a nice book for children and the moral of the story is that things don’t have to be done perfectly which I liked as children can often get hung up on things when they are learning.
As an illustration student I adored this book as soon as I discovered it! It's a unique story for kids and adults alike, giving out a wonderful message that we should all remember in my humble opinion.
Somehow I am not impressed, maybe it's not suitable for my reading. The baby seems taking it fine.
