One day, after growing tired of his daily wheat and oats, he goes out in search for new types of delicious food and stumbles upon an artist painting by the river and notices her scrumptious colorful paint tubes. After the artist leaves, Goodwin tries to eat the paint tubes and covers himself in paint.

After running away from the angry artist, Goodwin awakes the next morning and passersby do not notice him, vibrant and multicolored, standing on top of his hut.

Farmer Mac Duff, who’s struggling financially, partners with the artist and creates a business out of the attraction in order to pay her back for her materials and destroyed art but can Goodwin stay out of trouble?

About the Author/Illustrator:  Don Freeman (August 11, 1908 – January 1, 1978) has painted and drawn his way into the hearts of youngsters since publishing his first book for children in 1951. Co-authored with his wife Lydia for their son Roy, the book, Chuggy and the Blue Caboose, was the first of many colorful children’s books written and illustrated by Freeman. Several of his books have since been translated into foreign languages and are still in print today. Freeman did not start out to be a children’s author and illustrator, although by the age of seven he knew he wanted, above all else, to be an artist more than anything. Working with crayolas and whatever drawing paper he could get his hands on, the young Freeman began sketching a perceptive view of the world around him.  He is best known for the Children’s book Corduroy.
