Description

Charlie Muttnik is the pup with the pencil, the mutt with the marker, the dog with the drawing pad, the chap with the chalk! He draws all the time.

But when Charlie doodles all over his homework, there's trouble at school. It's only when his strict teacher, Miss Rich, tries something new that both realize Charlie can be a great artist at school and at home.



Praise For I Gotta Draw

“Charlie’s school and home worlds appear kinetic and alive...his story is timeless as he struggles to balance his love of a world outside the lines while feeling pressure to stay inside the lines at school.”
-Booklist

“Ms. Frizzle would be proud.”
-Kirkus Reviews
