Synopses & Reviews
Ten years ago, we met Gregory, his family, and his neighborhood in Clyde Robert Bulla's The Chalk Box Kid. The book was published to critical and popular acclaim. Publishers Weekly said, "Bulla has created a gem of a book--a story that goes straight to the heart." Now we pick up Gregory's story where it left off in The Paint Brush Kid. Gregory and his friends help their neighbor--Uncle Pancho--save his house by painting a wonderful mural on its walls. They paint a story, the story of Uncle Pancho's life, a story that comes to life for all who see it.
Uncle Pancho is about to lose his house! Gregory and his friends love Uncle Pancho. He isnt really anyones uncle—hes their friend. When he begins to tell the story of his life, Gregory has an idea. He will paint the story of Uncle Panchos Life . . . and maybe, just maybe, the painting will help save Uncle Panchos house.
