"A magical tale!"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

A lovely story about a clever young girl who easily outwits an evil emperor with her magic paintbrush. Very cleverly written, a story children will want to hear again and again. An instant classic. Delia

Description

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. In The Magic Paintbrush, Julia Donaldson's vibrant verse and Joel Stewart's beautiful illustrations bring fresh life to a traditional tale of how a little girl's integrity can withstand the corruption of power and greed.
