Vincent Paints His House

Tedd Arnold


List Price: 7.99*
* Individual store prices may vary.


Vincent is ready to paint his house—but what color should it be?
He starts painting it white, but the spider says it's his house, and he likes red. The caterpillar says it's his house and he likes yellow. The beetle likes purple, and the bird likes blue.
Each color introduces a new variety of vibrant shades, filling Vincent’s palette with too many options.  But, creative genius that he is, Vincent finds a way to make everyone happy!
Blending his signature cartoonish style with the textures and color choices of a certain post-impressionist Vincent, Tedd Arnold has created a simple story about friendship and compromise which is also a quiet, charming introduction to one of the most famous painters of history.
