Publisher's Summary

After spending the summer with her artist grandmother, Trisha knows she wants to be an artist, too. She’s thrilled when her sketches get her into Miss Chew’s special art class at the high school. A substitute teacher tells her she’s wasting time on art when she should be studying – but fortunately, this is one battle that Miss Chew and Trisha are up for!

This true story shows just how important a teacher can be in a child’s life – and celebrates the power of art itself.

The Book Snob Mom
Mom, Avid Reader, Austen Fangirl

This is a beautiful portrayal of several phenomenal teachers (contrasted with one not so amazing substitute) and the powerful impact they made in one little girl's life. Patricia Polacco's signature illustration style vividly tells this emotional story based on her own childhood and her own start as an artist. I love the personal attention and care both Mr. Donovan and Miss Chew give her in helping her overcome her struggles with reading and also excel at her passion—art.

The Goodfather
Husband. Father. Children's Book Critic Extraordinaire:)

I was touched by this inspiring story of a couple of teachers who took special interest in a student. They noticed her challenges, went out of their way to help, came to her aid and defense, and changed her life. It's tender to see the struggling student discover her strengths and develop her talent and confidence. As with most Patricia Polacco stories it is on the long end of picture books, but it's worth the read!
