Product Description:

Grade 1-4-A budding artist waits for the return of the summer painters to his island, and one by one they arrive, each with the tools of their trade and a dog. The young narrator spends time with each one-the flower painter, the painter of portraits, still-life painter, and the landscape painter-observing, learning, and finally challenging himself to paint the wind. The prose flows with the relaxed rhythms of summer. Evocative descriptions bring life and individuality to each artist. One "loves the names of his paints" like Terracotta and Scarlet Lake, another loves faces, a third artist loves "sea glass" and "jingle shells," and the last loves the moon. All of them observe the world around them with awe. Schneider's masterful paintings are light-splashed gems, and her dog portraits are particularly appealing. From cover to cover, this is a celebration of art and an amazing marriage of text and illustration.
