LoveReading4Kids Says

A young dinosaur artist starts to look at the world around them and create the beauty all around them. Vere shows how everything the artist sees and feels is reflected in their art by combining all these elements. As the dinosaur develops her style she sets off to share her art with the world – to show everyone the joy and beauty she sees. To do this she must be exceptionally brave.

Once she reaches the city she has so many places to paint, and so many surfaces to cover her art can become bigger and better – until she makes a mistake! She is so ashamed she stops painting until the people of the city beg her to paint again – a little girl explaining that ‘mistakes are how you learn’ and that what matters is what’s in your heart and not one small mistake.

Vere has created this book after being asked the question ‘What is an artist?’ – this is a gentle, thoughtful, wonderfully colourful and enlightening answer to that question. The pages are full of glorious contrasts in colours and shade, giving us all the idea that creativity, enthusiasm and heart are what makes great art…. It is an exhortation to keep drawing and keep creating.
