Lucy wants to make a picture for her grandpa, but she doesn't want to use the brightly coloured paints with the rest of the children. Lucy's grandpa is blind, so Lucy makes him a very special picture with twigs, feather, velvet and sand - a picture he can feel with his fingers.This heart-warming story about a little girl's imagination and the love between grandchild and grandparent is perfect for sharing with young children.

Nicola Moon was born in Bristol, but grew up in Yorkshire. She has worked as a laboratory research assistant and a secondary school science teacher. Nicola's first picture book was published in 1994 and to date she has had over a dozen titles published including, for Orchard, Lucy's Picture. Nicola lives in Wiltshire. Alex Ayliffe is a well-known children's book illustrator. Her titles for Orchard include the bestselling Dig Dig Digging, Emergency! Choo Choo Clickety-Clack! Roar! Snap! and her latest title Stomp, Dinosaur, Stomp! Her board book Boo Barney won the Sainsbury's Baby Book Award. Alex Lives in Hertfordshire with her family.From Publishers Weekly:
Vision is only one means of experiencing one's surroundings, imply the author and artist of this affecting story. When Lucy's class gets ready "to do some painting," Lucy asks to work instead on a collage for her grandfather. Soft reds and blues predominate in Ayliffe's torn-paper collage art, which shows the girl rummaging amid cloth scraps for the perfect items ("She liked plunging her hands deep in the box and feeling with her eyes shut"), then sacrificing her outside playtime to collect "twigs, leaves, and two small feathers." In a final burst of creativity (though not a recommended artistic maneuver), Lucy snips a lock of her hair to simulate a golden retriever's coat. The pictured pooch is her blind grandfather's seeing-eye dog; examining her tactile portrait (reproduced on one of the final pages) a proud Grandpa observes, "It's the best picture I've ever seen." Both Ayliffe's expressive compositions and Moon's straightforward prose-which admirably presents a physical disability here without attendant emotion-convey Lucy's distinctive intensity; her example might well inspire youngsters to fashion similar projects. Ages 3-7.
