The Paint Brush Kid (英语) 平装 – 1998年12月7日
From School Library Journal
Grade 2-4-In this little jewel of a beginning chapter book, Gregory, the Chalk Box Kid (Random, 1987), returns with his friends Ivy and Richard. Here, Gregory paints pictures of Uncle Pancho's childhood in Mexico on the man's house. When the house is slated for demolition because of a new freeway, a plan is hatched to save it; when that fails, the house is moved out of the path of destruction to a new site. Uncle Pancho's hopes of being reunited with his son come to nothing, but a neighbor, Mr. Hiller, presents himself as a volunteer adopted son. Thus, disappointments are turned into victories. Even self-absorbed Uncle Max comes partly alive and shows a little interest in Gregory's artwork. Beier's pencil drawings are effective and plentiful but, given the topic, it's a shame they aren't in color. The full-color picture on the cover clearly shows the beatific expression of a child engaged in the flow of creation.

Clyde Robert Bulla (1914–2007) was born on a farm near King City, Missouri. He went to a one-room country school. Reading and writing were his favorite subjects, and by the time he was seven, Bulla knew he wanted to be a writer. After years of writing magazine stories and novels and working on his hometown newspaper, he found that he really wanted to write for children. More than 70 of his books for boys and girls have been published.
