Jun 12, Shane Harcombe rated it liked it. My daughter said it's a book on loneliness and friendship while I though it's a book on the relationship between the artist and his work, a demonstration on how difficult it is for a painter to let his work go. I know I've stopped to watch them for a while at festivals and have donated to street artists where possible, but I've never given any thought to the art once I've moved on apart from asking others did they see the incredible drawing.

I guess this is a story that speaks to the connection artists feel to their art. I absolutely adored Mandy Ord's illustrations in this book. Chalk Boy speaks about the need to really live life, to find your place with those like you and the power of friendship. Sharlene Evans rated it really liked it Oct 29, Stunning artwork, and beautiful story. As night descends and rain begins to fall, the artist protects Chalk Boy from disappearing.
