The Art Lesson (Paperstar Book) Paperback – 21 December 2001
"The perennial conflict between Individual and Authority, or between Artist and Society, lies beneath this anecdote, and it's gratifying to see the small non-conformist accommodated. Everyone can enjoy dePaola's gentle autobiographical evocation of a loving family and a happy obsession". — School Library Journal

At the beginning of the book, I wasn't sure it was good for my kid, as he had some serious behavior issues. By the time we got to the end of the book, it was clear that the message was to believe in oneself and never give up your dreams.
I noticed it was also on the 2nd to 3rd grade summer reading list.
