I hope Jane Hissey’s stories
All the toys want to do their own paintings, but things are not going according to plan. Spots run and become stripes, stripes become wavy, spots becomes splodges, but Old Bear comes to the rescue and shows the other toys what working together can achieve. A beautiful brand new edition of Jane Hissey’s classic playroom adventure, The All-Together Painting.
