When a young boy learns about what makes art special—sometimes it’s beautiful, sometimes it’s funny, sometimes it tells a story—he realizes that these same characteristics are what make his grandmother special, too. As a result, he finds the inspiration to create his own masterpiece that’s one of a kind.

Christopher Award–winning author Scott Menchin and New York Times bestselling illustrator Harry Bliss have teamed up for a celebration of the power of art and expression, and the extraordinary love between grandparent and child.


"A good bridge to take children from comic tropes to fine art."
Kirkus Reviews

"By steering readers into the heady realm of context, criteria, and taste, everyone becomes a critic - and that's an illuminating, empowering thing."
Publishers Weekly

"The story is well written and serves as a great introduction to art appreciation. The subject matter, along with a tender grandparent relationship, makes this a worthwhile purchase."
School Library Journal, Anna Haase Krueger, Ramsey County Library, MN

"Young art history students will enjoy embedded Picasso and Duchamp references. Grandmas, particularly those who belong to the Red Hat Society, will be pleased to be honored as 'one of a kind.'"
The Horn Book Magazine, Sarah Ellis
