In this story set in France at the turn of the century, young Danielle dreams of becoming an artist. Her father, however, wishes she would choose a more practical career, as her artwork is very fanciful and unrealistic. Will Danielle be able to prove to him that her art is worthwhile? Watercolor and pen-and-ink illustrations accompany the text. Selected by the New York Times Book Review as one of the Best Illustrated Children's Books of 1996.
