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

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!

I love ‘LoveReading 4 kids’ because they let you read and learn things you’d never dreamed of learning before.

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to
