The Magic Paintbrush, Paperback

The Magic Paintbrush Paperback

Illustrated by Joel Stewart



With her magic paintbrush, Shen can paint steaming pots full of fish and oysters to feed the hungry people in her village.

When the evil emperor commands Shen to paint gold for him, she is determined to keep her promise to paint only for the poor.

Julia Donaldson's vibrant verse brings fresh life to a traditional tale of how a little girl's integrity can withstand the corruption of power and greed.
