Sarah and Simon's father is an impoverished artist, reduced to selling the silver teaspoons to buy food for his family. Their hopes are pinned on his 'masterpiece', but when he runs out of red paint there's no money to buy more. In a wonderful twist in the tale, Sally and Simon's love of reading in an old bookshop saves the day. The book was written and illustrated by Ardizzone (1900-1979) in 1965.
