Publisher's Summary

Eleven-year-old Bartholomew can’t go to school, play outside, or worst of all, make art - so he sketches in secret. 

After he meets the skateboarding painter Alexander DeVinci, they're yanked into another realm by a magical painting. Their own world is very different in comparison to Artania: a world with living paintings and sculptures. 

They soon learn that Artania is on the verge of destruction, and Bartholomew's art is the only thing that can save it. With both gods and goddesses at his side, Bartholomew braves battles, duels, and skateboarding escapes. 

But even with his growing powers, can he defeat the evil Sickhert's army and bring art back to the world?

Great Story

A great story well read but the editor didn't listen to the final product. Several times during the performance, a sentence or a few words were repeated. A little annoying but still loved the story!!

I love the way Laurie Woodward writes

I love the way Laurie Woodward writes. This story is full of original ideas and quirky concepts. It has the power to both expand a young reader’s vocabulary and critical thinking skills all while keeping them thoroughly entertained. Loved it!

Fantastically original concept

Great adventure story with deeply original concepts. Great boy friendship stuff with realistic dialogue amid admittedly crazy adventure happenings. I especially liked the well-drawn secondary characters like Bartholomew’s mother. Felt very Roald Dahl-ish. The audiobook has a fantastic voice actor tell the fun tale. Kudos to the author and performer.
