The Well Read Guess (Week 13)

Each week I post quotes from 2 picture books - a new(er) picture book and an older/classic picture book. Be the first to identify a quote (by the following Thursday), and earn an entry into the current monthly giveaway! Identify both the book and the author for a quote, and you'll get two entries. Identify both for both quotes, get four entries.

Quote #1:  Painting Pepette by Linda Ravin Lodding, Claire Fletcher
"The painter propped open his easel and filled his canvas with not one, but two button noses, and three rabbit ears! When he finished, he waved his paintbrush in the air and declared his painting a 'masterpiece'!"

Quote #2: I Ain't Gonna Paint No More by Karen Beaumont, David Catrow
"One day my mama caught me 
paintin' pictures on the floor
and the ceiling
and the walls
and the curtains
and the door, 
and I heard my mama holler, 
like I never did before..."

(Week 13 Guesses end Thursday, June 16, 2016 at midnight Central time are CLOSED)

    Quote #2 is from Ain't Gonna Paint No More by Beaumont and Catrow. We ADORE any book with Catrow illustrations. I'm surprised you chose this one, since you cringe when you hear poor grammar.... :)

    1. I don't necessarily mind poor grammar if it is authetic. I mind it (terribly!) if it is is drawn from stereotypes.
