Everyone in the Fizz family is an artist. Everyone except Lester, whose paintings are pitiful and doodles are drab. Lester doesn't think he'll ever be an artist, until the day a mouthful of gum becomes a work of art on Lester's talented lips. Drawing inspiration from all directions, Lester develops his special talent for artful bubbles and blows the competition away!

Full of wordplay, tongue-in-cheek humor, clever art references, and notes about the famous works referenced in Thor Wickstrom's exuberant illustrations, this is a delight for young artists and bubble-gum fans.
