About the Book
Beloved author David McPhail tells the story of a small boy who does the extraordinary in this whimsical picture book that will remind readers of the power that both art and artist can wield.
When Andrew finds a crayon under the sofa, he puts it to use by scribbling on the floor. Mom is not happy, but Andrew’s grandmother knows what to do. She gives him a pad of paper. From that day on, Andrew draws, and draws, and draws. He becomes so skilled that his work takes on a life of its own. “Oh my,” says Grandmother when the bird Andrew draws her alights on her shoulder. Hearing of Andrew’s remarkable artwork, the president calls with a question. Could Andrew use his ability to help the whole world?
