He paints all-blue pictures, all-pink pictures, plus pictures from the front and side all at the same time! He makes art out of bike bits and he can draw pictures in less than 60 seconds! Soon he becomes the greatest painter in the world. But he still wants to be different...

Review quote

"Young readers will love to see Picasso in his studio and will enjoy the quirky surprise at the end of the book. Children will hopefully be inspired by Picasso's creations to produce imaginative work of their own. They will be amazed by his imagination and will love to read along with the catchy repetitive text in the story" Parents in Touch "It's a fascinating insight ... The book is filled with colourful pictures and even a special fold-out page that keeps kids enthusiastically turning the pages" Madhouse Family Reviews
