Product Description

Oscar loves looking at the art Great-Granny creates. But his own drawings never look the way he wants them to. So instead of making art, he decides to collect art.

Over the years Oscar's room becomes filled with beautiful paintings and drawings in every style and color. His collection grows and grows and grows until a museum needs to be built to house it all.

Since publishing his first book, Pleasant Fieldmouse, local Toledo author, Jan Wahl, has written more than 100 books for children, including Christmas Present and the acclaimed I Met a Dinosaur. His picture books have won a number of awards, including the Youth Critics Prize at the Bologna Children's Book Fair.
