This is such a wonderful story about a little girl who loves to draw, but she loves it so much she often gets distracted in school. A crisis occurs when she draws a picture for her sick teacher, but forgets to sign it. The story is told very lovingly, and the illustrations are all in black and white line and shading, with splashes of color to highlight Willaby and her artwork. The protagonist is an African American girl, and her class is very racially diverse, which I appreciated.
