Synopsis

Synopsis

GROWING UP IN Russia in the late 1800s, Marc Chagall doesn't know what art is. He doesn't even know what drawing is until one of his
schoolmates shows him how to trace a picture in a magazine. Marc tries it himself, then decides to pull pictures out of his own mind - his Uncle Noah on the roof, giant chickens, flying cows, happy men with fiddles, and women with lambs. Suddenly Marc knows what he wants to do with his life. He wants to be an artist!

“For this fictionalized account, Kimmel takes only the bare bones of Chagall’s story—the Russian village, the influential art teacher, the worried parents—to get across what is truly important: to follow your dream.”—Kirkus Reviews
