In Lian Cho’s hilarious and vibrant debut picture book as author-illustrator, she celebrates the creativity of a young girl breaking from the tradition of her famous artist parents and going against the status quo to express her own unique style. 

Presenting Olive Chen!

The most magnificent and brilliant artist in the whole wide world!

Her parents are also artists—serious artists—who paint prim, proper, perfect shapes. They know Olive has the talent to follow in their footsteps.

 But Olive likes to smear, splatter, splash, and even lick.

With a brush in each hand, Olive cascades through town, painting what she wants to, what she feels—until she reaches her parents’ pristine art museum . . .
