Bob has extremely skinny legs. He is an otherwise handsome bird, but those legs, holy moly, they are soooooo skinny! When Bob walks by the owl always says “Oooh! Look at that funny stick walk!” The other birds cry “OH! How puny your legs are!” whenever they see Bob and his stick-like legs strolling down the street. Of course, this makes Bob feel pretty darn bad about himself. I mean, can we blame him? How do you think you would feel if everyone teased you and made fun of your skinny legs? Luckily Bob discovers art, and is incredibly inspired. Like, crazy inspired. And that inspiration turns into an idea. And that idea becomes a way to show the world that he is more than a simple pair of chop sticks walking down the road. Bob the Artist by Marion Deuchars is an adorably illustrated book about how a bird can show the world his true worth with only his imagination and a little bit of paint.
