All Cézanne wants is to be a great painter like his friends Monet, Pissarro, and Renoir. But when he shows his works, the professors and critics all dismiss him. Even his own pet parrot, Bisou, can't be brought to say, "Cézanne is a great painter!" When Cézanne finds the courage to paint in a way no one else has done before, though, he finally proves his talent. Amy Guglielmo introduces readers 4 to 8 to one of the most influential artists of all time, while Lemony Snicket's frequent collaborator Brett Helquist pays homage to Cézanne's style even as he renders these characters in expressive oil paintings of his own.
