Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A dab of blue here, a splash of red there, a goopy smear of green...everywhere. To the tune of "It Ain't Gonna Rain No More," one creative kid floods his world with color, painting first the walls, then the ceiling, then HIMSELF! Before this feisty artist is through, he'll have painted his head, back, hands, legs, feet, and...Oh no — here comes Mama! Karen Beaumont's zippy text and David Catrow's zany illustrations turn an infamous childhood activity into raucous storytime fun, giving a silly twist to the fine art of self-expression.

Review:

"Written to the tune of 'It Ain't Gonna Rain No More,' this lighthearted frolic by the creators of I Like Myself! centers on an aspiring young artist who makes elaborate paintings on the ceilings and walls, until mama shouts, 'Ya ain't a-gonna paint no more!' and stashes the boy's art supplies on the top shelf of a closet. Determinedly declaring 'but there ain't no way that I ain't gonna paint no more,' the youngster climbs onto a makeshift pyramid to reach his paints — the only splash of color in an otherwise black-and-white spread. The rollicking rhymed narrative and stylized ink-and-paint illustrations then reveal the narrator painting his body parts in a variety of wild patterns, while — with comic irony — he chants the refrain that comprises the book's title. In a child-tickling finale, the boy bellows, 'But I'm such a nut,/ gonna paint my /what?!' drolly avoiding mentioning the body part that completes the rhyme. Given the plot's premise, Catrow's humorously hyperbolic art fittingly takes center stage here, growing increasingly flamboyant and electric as the boy embellishes more and more of his anatomy — and his playful pooch becomes equally well decorated."

As a elementary school teacher, I found this book to helpful in teaching colors, parts of the body and rhyming. All of my students fell in love with this book and I had to read(sing) it everyday.

I retired in June 2011 and begin reading to children at a homeschool. It is their favorite and they fight over the book. Excellent book, especially if you sing the story.

We read this book to our Head Start program last week and I absolutely loved it. I velieve I enjoyed it more than the kids. After reading it to them I sat down and read it a couple times to myself. Now I am online trying to purchase the book.

For all of the budding artists out there, this one is for you! The rhyming is hysterical while the pictures tell a complete story on thier own. A great family pick.
