Benjamin West and His Cat Grimalkin
This endearing story is based on the true childhood story of Benjamin West, who became known as the father of American painting. Benjamin comes from a Quaker family whose beliefs forbid the creation of images. But when Benjamin discovers he has a special gift for art, an intriguing journey begins. The first few pages might be a little hard to get into, but then I couldn’t put the book down. It is a fantastic and intriguing story and features beautiful, skilled writing.
