Colette is a small mouse following her heart’s desire to paint. Why wouldn’t she be? She lives behind the walls of a grand Paris museum. She is surrounded by the work of great artists all day. Nothing can stop her from realizing her passion – not even Rufus, the silly museum guard cat – and Colette’s favorite model.
As Rufus catnaps Colette practices her favorite works of art painting him. When he discovers he is the subject of Colette’s paintings, he becomes her biggest ally. By sticking to what she loves, and learning from the greats, Colette is growing into the artist she dreams of being. And she just may create more than one furry painter in the museum.
This inspiring and fun book features vibrant illustrations and extra facts at the back, including information and full color photos of famous artworks in the story.
