The Little Paintbrush
The Little Paint Brush is what would happen if Tim Burton had written an art history book. The little paintbrush is new and just wants Edvard to use him. He is bullied by all of the other paintbrushes in the cabinet who brag and show off how they have been used and for what famous painting. This makes the little paintbrush just want to be used more. The other brushes toss him out of the cabinet. He doesn’t know what to do and when a thief breaks in he thinks this is his time to be noticed and wakes up Edvard. The thief steals his painting, and, mad, Edvard decides to paint. You can probably guess the rest!
The art in this book is a little scary, especially when they show the Madonna. She looks like Sally from Nightmare Before Christmas and the rats look like they eat people. The story does deal with the serious issue of bullying and you get a little history of Edvard Munch, though some of it is made up. I would recommend this book because it isn’t too long and has both writing and drawings.
