I'm not sure about this book, i do like it a bit though so yeah.

24 Aug 2022

I think other people should read it. I liked it very much. People in different countries should read it.

12 Aug 2022

It wasn't as long as I thought it would be. It was very motivational to allow anyone to achieve what they want to achieve.

I liked it because Vashti was a great artist and in fact she made a sculpture.

28 Jul 2022

It has made me want to do some drawing.
She says to sign it and I write my name at the bottom of all of my pictures.

I liked Vashti because she kept trying and trying to draw.

I would recommend this book.

This book can be used in many ways, not just to inspire reluctant artists, but for PSHE about taking the first step, having a go and then using your talent to help others. Perfect for the beginning of term and starting the right mindset!

Really nice sentiment

I liked the ending when the little girl helped the boy by copying the teacher

26 Jul 2021

It is lovely.x

24 Jul 2021

This got a top score because the girl doesn't know how to draw at the beginning but her teacher tells her to do a little mark and see where it takes her. This tells me to never give up because if you do, you'll never learn.

This is a very good book because it reminds us that we can all do art!

This book really shows how progress develops your skills and i really enjoyed it!

13 Jul 2021

I think this is a book which is giving the reader a message. It’s saying everyone can draw if they try. I liked Vashti the best. I would definitely recommend it to someone else.

Really good book.

This book has really help me be proud of my pictures. They don't all have to be perfect and I love to make better pictures each time. I have lots of them signed and displayed in the kitchen.

I liked this book although it wasn’t really the type of book I liked, it is very short but it shows you that you can be creative even if you only draw a dot

26 Aug 2020

I love painting and drawing too

A book that gives advice:Do not lose hope

21 Aug 2020

I enjoyed the book it was about a girl who thinks he can’t draw. She makes a mark and sees where it takes her. I would recommend this book.

19 Aug 2020

I enjoyed this book, I like it when Vashti was being nice to the boy at the end. I liked it when the boy said nice things about Vashti’s drawings. I think my friends would enjoy this book. This book has taught me to never give up and to keep trying.

I like the story and the pictures

18 Aug 2020

I liked it because the little girl showed the little boy how to do something if you keep trying.

13 Aug 2020

I think it was good because it encourages people to try things they think they’re not good at.

02 Aug 2020

I liked that Vashi just went jab and made a dot.

14 Jul 2020

I though it was wonderful because that a not that good drawer comes to a fabulous painter. I liked the teacher because she put the dot on the wall.

26 Jun 2020

I liked it quite a lot and I would recommend it.

11 Jun 2020

It was very interesting how Vashti learnt to draw

22 Jul 2019

She’s liked everything about it. All the different kind of dots
