The little paintbrush is often teased by all the other brushes in the cabinet, who have thick bristles and are chosen by their artist to create many paintings. They boast all day about the pieces they've helped create, and the little paintbrush yearns to be like them. One day, the little paintbrush is thrown out of the cabinet as he tries to inch out to be noticed. Alone and disheveled, he befriends an old broom who consoles him. Then, one night, a thief breaks into the artist's house and it's up to the little paintbrush to warn the artist—who is none other than Edvard Munch!
After driving the thief away, Munch is inspired by the little paintbrush and his valiant efforts. Together they create a new masterpiece, The Scream. And from then on, the little paintbrush becomes Munch's favorite. This magical tale teaches kids about one of history's most famous paintings through the story of one little paintbrush who becomes a big talent.
