McPhail's art is great for kids, and can appeal to adults as well. Cute story about being generous.

Andrew finds a crayon under the couch. At first he scribbles on the floor until his mom catches him and Grandma gives him a drawing pad. He practices and practices wherever he goes until his drawings begin to jump off the page--literally. He draws items for his family. The president hears of Andrews amazing gift and asks him to use it for the good of the world. Andrew draws trucks of food for the hungry and a boatload of supplies to make houses. One day his crayon it down to the final stub so he draws something for himself.

I love the character of Andrew and his wild hair. I don't enjoy the illustrations of this book as much as some of McPhail's others. The illustrations are a little sketchy and feel incomplete. But I enjoy the simplicity of the story and how Andrew keeps drawing until he becomes very good. This is a cute story for budding artists. I recommend this book for ages 3-7.
