River Boy by Tim Bowler
Grandpa refuses to stay in hospital, as he is determined to finish his painting, 'River Boy', before he goes. At first Jess can't understand his refusal, but then she too becomes involved in the painting. And when she meets the river boy himself, she finds she is caught up in a challenge of her own that she must complete - before it's too late.
