The Lovereading4Kids comment

This is the perfect book for anyone who loves making art – and making a mess particularly if there’s a boy involved! A sharp, silly, fabulously funny book, which shows that Art is EVERYWHERE!

Synopsis

I am an Artist by Marta Altes

Meet the boy who can't stop creating art! He loves colours, shapes, textures and EVERYTHING inspires him: his socks, the contents of the fridge, even his cat gets a new coat (of paint!). But there's just one problem: his mum isn't quite so enthusiastic. In fact, she seems a little cross! But this boy has a plan to make his mum smile. He's about to create his finest piece yet and on a very grand scale...

Reviews

There's a truly inspirational message in this gloriously anarchic picture book ...would give Banksy a run for his money. -- Daily Mail

About the Author

Marta Altes

Marta Altés loves to tell stories and her love of illustration saw her study for a degree in Graphic Design in Barcelona. Marta moved to the UK to study for an MA in Children’s Book Illustration at Cambridge School of Art (the best decision she ever made!) and graduated in 2011. Her debut book for Macmillan, My Grandpa, was published in July 2012 and the author was shortlisted for the Waterstone’s 2012 Children’s Book Prize.

Marta lives in London.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!
