Brush of the Gods

Brush of the Gods by Lenore Look and illustrated by Meilo So tells the story of Wu Daozi, one of China’s greatest painters.

As with all historical great figures, his story has been enlarged and exaggerated, although his artistic ability was not.

Look writes a fictional account of Daozi’s life, based upon references in Chinese documents. Her story is fun to read, and a great example of following your dream, even when it contradicts current conventions.

Recommended for ages 3 – 10.
