Take your mind back to a couple of years ago. Ok, 20 or 30, maybe 40. Remember the genius that was inside of you but nobody recognized? All that potential you had as a painter, a trapeze artist, a puddle jumper (it takes a lot of skill to jump over 10-inch puddles). Remember the angst you felt? Well, we hope you’ve overcome those emotions (no really, we do), and we hope for the sake of your kids that you won’t fail to recognize your child’s genius. But if you do, here’s a book that will give your little one hope.
Noonie’s Masterpiece is just that, a masterpiece of a book that should be on the bookshelf in every creative kid’s room. The story revolves around a 10-year-old aspiring artist stuck living with her aunt, uncle and cousin, who don’t quite understand Noonie’s fresh and unique creations. But she soon discovers that an artist never quits and never gives up on her vision.
The book is filled with dreamy illustrations that have a quirky retro look to them, while the text will have you thinking your own child wrote the story — it’s precocious, fun, and so engaging, even for adults. And it even got a Kirkus Review that didn’t chew the book up and spit it out — that’s sayin’ something.
So if you have an artsy creative type in the family who sometimes feels misunderstood and uninspired, this book is a must.
