From the Inside Flap
Titus dreamed of being an artist like his famous father, but his father didnÂt think he was old enough to learn. Even so, Titus was determined. He peeked over his fatherÂs shoulder, watching as lines wiggled across the paper. As if by magic, a view of the Amstel River appeared.
ÂIÂm going to do that,Â Titus thought.
Author Molly Blaisdell transports young readers to the city of Amsterdam in the 1650s. It is a time when Rembrandt van Rijn is at the height of his artistic powersÂand when his young son Titus longs to imitate his father and become a great painter. But Rembrandt tells the boy he is too young to learn to draw and paint. How can young Titus change his fatherÂs mind? Here is a warm-hearted story for children with illustrations that capture the atmosphere of seventeenth-century Holland and suggest some of the genius that radiates from RembrandtÂs own magnificent paintings.
Molly Blaisdell is a freelance writer who has published books for children on a variety of subjects. She lives with her husband, Tim, and their four children in Woodinville, Washington.
Nancy Lane is a freelance illustrator and creator of artwork that ranges from community murals, logos, and courtroom drawings to licensed T-shirt designs, and childrenÂs books. She is also the illustrator of the childrenÂs book, Renoir and the Boy with the Long Hair, published by BarronÂs.
