A Brush Full of Colour: The World of Ted Harrison
Ted Harrison was a boy who loved to paint. This book tells about his life and his different paintings. When he was young he made a treasure map like from Treasure Island, and he painted the places that he went around the world. He went to India and Malaysia and Egypt. Then he started teaching school in Canada, but the books for the children needed different pictures. So Ted made pictures of people out in the cold. Then he went to Yukon, where it was even colder, and he started painting pictures of Yukon. Some of his paintings were the colors of nature, but then he started painting things that really blended in but were not nature’s colors, like a pink moose or a blue sun or a pink whale. People really liked his paintings because they were so colorful. I like his paintings too, and this book asks you questions to get you thinking about them. But I didn’t really like reading all the stuff about Ted’s life; it was too long. But one story that was really funny was when he thought a truck was a really expensive cat!
