Grade 1-4 A dreamy piece about a young boy's awakening to artistic vision through his friendship with a lake-side painter. At first, shy Charlie watches from a distance as Gregory paints, then drifts awhile in his canoe. The two communicate next through messages on the artist's canvas, and then, painting side-by-side, through sharing the process of creative expression, as Gregory paints his singular vision and Charles discovers his own. The developing relationship parallels Charlie's inner process of getting to know the private, creative part of himself. Soft-focus, soft-color illustrationsdouble-page watercolorsare full of sun and shadow, leaves and water, and gentle peace punctuated by bursts of energy, as when Gregory's cat springs while geese take flight. The pictures carry a sense of the mystery of art. This is romantic, but not sentimental. It is eloquently done, and the wholewords and picturesspeaks and lingers.
