Titus dreamed of being an artist like his famous father, but his father didn't think he was old enough to learn. Even so, Titus was determined. He peeked over his father's shoulder, watching as lines wiggled across the paper. As if by magic, a view of the Amstel River appeared.

"I'm going to do that," Titus thought.

Author Molly Blaisdell transports young readers to the city of Amsterdam in the 1650s. It is a time when Rembrandt van Rijn is at the height of his artistic powers--and when his young son Titus longs to imitate his father and become a great painter. But Rembrandt tells the boy he is too young to learn to draw and paint. How can young Titus change his father's mind? Here is a warm-hearted story for children with illustrations that capture the atmosphere of seventeenth-century Holland and suggest some of the genius that radiates from Rembrandt's own magnificent paintings.
