" I loved this picture book about a little girl who is given a magic paintbrush to help the poor. Beautiful illustrations and a great story told in verse. " said.

" One of my favourite books ever. Particularly good to read out loud at story time. " said.

" It was okay. I don't really like children's books in verse " said.

" This delightful tale about Shen's discovery of a magic paintbrush to spread happiness, not only exposes the children to the power of imagination and goodwill, but also introduces to them, the meaning of choice, and the use of wit at the nick of time. " said.

" We love this enchanting rhyming story about Shen and her magic paint brush- it's exciting and has an old fashioned quality about it. The illustrations are great and make a nice change in style to most current childrens stories. " said.

" A change of style for Gruffalo author Julia Donaldson, though her rhymes are as compelling as ever, in this thoughtful China-set story telling of Shen and her magic paintbrush, and her refusal to obey the greedy demands of the Emperor. Shen is a principled young woman who stands firm in the face of evil to hold true to her own beliefs, and to protect her friends and family. An inspiring read. " said.

" The magic paintbrush is a wonderful story by Julia Donaldson, this book is a great lesson for all ages to not be greedy and use what you have wisely and for a good cause. This book teaches the importance of doing the right thing and not being greedy and trying to steal things from others. The pictures in this book are wonderful pieces of artwork, and are a wonder to watch.This book is very thin and you will probably finish it in less than 10 minutes. " said.

"‘The Magic Paintbrush’ is the story of how Shen, a little village girl, defied the greedy Chinese emperor with the powers of her magical paintbrush. Determined to only paint and bring to life objects to help the poor and needy, Shen courageously resists the emperor’s order to paint a tree with golden coins instead of leaves. The little girl’s kindness and integrity, as well as her magic powers, elevate her to the height of an emperor in this light-hearted story.

The use of simple rhymes and beautiful illustrations of Ancient Chinese settings makes ‘The Magic Paintbrush’ attractive to children from the Foundation Stage to Key Stage 2. I would use it in literacy lessons to introduce new connectives and adjectives, as well as in history to discuss cultural elements of Chinese quotidian life.
" said.
