The Magic PaintbrushAuthor: Julia Donaldson
Illustrator: Joel Stewart
Julia Donaldson’s vibrant verse brings fresh life to a traditional tale of how a little girl’s integrity can withstand the corruption of power and greed.With her magic paintbrush, Shen can paint steaming pots full of fish and oysters to feed the hungry people in her village. When the evil emperor commands Shen to paint gold for him, she is determined to keep her promise to paint only for the poor. Talented illustrator Joel Stewart adds extra magic to the story with his Orient-influenced paintings.
