I really liked the story about sibling rivalry, so a child can see that their annoying little sibling just loves them so much. What I didn't love was the illustrations. Red, black, and white. Hard on the eyes and not very engaging. Better for an older child who can read on their own and maybe privately reflect.

A cute picture book about a focused, young artist named Louise who strives to capture her model's "cat-ness" to create a masterpiece. However, when she gets ready for her show, Louise discovers that her younger brother has discovered his own inspiration...

A charming read for children who love creating art AND love their younger sibling despite the times things don't go as planned.

Louise is a young artist. She draws most of the time. She thinks about how to draw the rest of the time. She is currently working on her masterpiece for an "art show". Her little brother, Art, is also an artist. But he is a toddler and begins drawing on pieces of Louise's artwork. Then he makes art on her masterpiece. Big oops! But as much as she loves art, she loves her brother Art more.

The wording of this book is very simple--only a sentence or two per page--which makes it a quick read or a good book for beginning readers. The illustrations are mostly in red black and white as you see on the cover. The illustrations are a mix of very simple and very complex drawings on the same page which makes then intriguing.

The story is endearing as Louise shows how much her brother means more to her than her art. This sends a wonderful message to the reader. It is also fun to watch her make all of her art. She is obviously obsessed with drawing. I think budding artists would enjoy this story very much.
