*Art* by Patrick McDonnell
Art
by Patrick McDonnell
Ages 4-8 32 pages Bloomsbury USA May 2005 Hardcover    

Art is an inviting, charming little boy who enjoys drawing and painting to his heartís content. He paints and doodles, zigs and zags, and draws scribbles that squiggle for everyone to admire. When Art gets started on his project, there is no stopping him from reaching a state of physical and mental exhaustion, since he infuses each of his creations with such passion and pride. Once his masterpieces are complete, he falls fast asleep - not surprising after such a large-scale project. Upon awakening from a much-needed rest, Art finds his masterpieces covering the refrigerator, displayed by his mom who loves art in all forms.

Art is a heart-warming book with cheery illustrations that shows how much joy can be created with some bright colors and a vivid imagination.
