Synopsis

Singer and the Paint by Mira Shapur

In this cheerful story, Amy and Sam are helping to paint the furniture at home. Their excitable dog, Singer, decides to lend them a hand by wagging and thumping her tail on the wet paint. In the colourful calamity that ensues, Amy, Sam and Singer - and Singer's kennel - find themselves dressed top to toe in red and blue paint! First published with a different text in 1966, Singer and the Paint features original illustrations by the acclaimed designer, Fredun Shapur. They are brought to life again here by an entirely new text written by Shapur's daughter, Mira Shapur, who tells this charming story afresh. Young children will delight in Singer's unbounded enthusiasm for trying new things and will take pleasure in the book's bold, mid-century illustrations that are truly timeless in their vividness.
