Synopsis: Being inside one of Grandma Prisbrey's houses was like being inside a rainbow or a kaleidoscope or a jewel.

A vibrant portrait of American visionary artist Grandma Prisbrey

The walls of Grandma Prisbrey's houses glowed and glittered with color because she made them out of bottles. Large and small, fancy and plain, Grandma Prisbrey salvaged every bottle she could find.
Soon people started calling Grandma Prisbrey an artist. "I can't even draw a car that looks like one," she said. "But I guess there are different kinds of art." Lush and lyrical, this is an evocative introduction to the world of visionary, or untrained, art.

About the Author: Melissa Eskridge Slaymaker was inspired to write this book by a visit to Grandma Prisbrey's Bottle Village in California. Ms. Slaymaker lives with her husband and daughter in Knoxville, Tennessee. This is her first book for children.

Julie Paschkis visited Bottle Village before starting this book. A painter and illustrator of several highly acclaimed books, she lives and works in Seattle, Washington.
