About the Book
The Magic Paintbrush tells the story of Tony Lee, a 10-year-old boy who craves a little relief from hours of studying. Tony is tired and needs a short break. Now, who better to grant it than a magic paintbrush?
Share in this uplifting tale of a big-hearted boy who outsmarted an evil Emperor and his dim-witted foot soldiers with his ability to think quickly. Set in ancient China, The Magic Paintbrush teaches important lessons about friendship, the dangers of abusing power, and the value of creativity.
It’s a colouring book too! This isn’t just a story book. Young readers will be able to fill in the colours in this beautifully illustrated book.
