My Fingerpaint Masterpiece by Sherrill S. Cannon
Children’s Picture Book – Gold Medal Winner of 2014 Readers’ Favorite International Awards, Children K-3, as well as an Illustrations Award – Also a Pinnacle Achievement Award Winner
Have you ever seen a “work of art” worth millions, which looks like something your child just brought home from school? The dual perspective of “Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder” and just a little bit of “The Emperor’s New Clothes” is evident in this clever artwork story of a child who paints a fingerpaint print in class and then loses it in the wind on the way home. Illustrated from the point of view of a child, whose identity is left to the imagination of the reader since all of the illustrations are what the child sees, the fingerpaint print is interpreted by official “judges” as well as by bystanders. Should people be influenced by what others see, or use their own self-esteem to make their own judgments?
This is the sixth rhyming children’s book by this award-winning author, whose other bestselling books include Manner-Man, Gimme-Jimmy, The Magic Word, Peter and the Whimper-Whineys and Santa’s Birthday Gift.
Former teacher Sherrill S. Cannon has won eighteen awards for her five previous rhyming books and is also the author of seven published and internationally performed plays for elementary school children. She has been called “a modern day Dr. Seuss.” – GTMA Review
Midwest Book Review:
“My Fingerpaint Masterpiece” is a delightful rhyming story about honesty, character, and creativity, with lots of jokes and hidden surprises in the illustrations and text. One day in art class a child creates an unfinished finger painting while thinking of a scene of his pet dog on the lawn. The unfinished, unsigned painting begins travels of its own on the way home with the child when a wind blows it into the Rainbow Connection Art Gallery where it is framed and hung with other paintings by mistake. Many complications multiply, and finally the unknown fingerpaint masterpiece is awarded first place! The child finally speaks up and tries to take credit for the misunderstood finger painting, no one will believe her/him. This typical reaction is accepted by both child and parents, and the upshot of the story is, a fingerpaint masterpiece by an unnamed artist hangs in the Museum Art Gallery with First Prize award ribbon pinned to it. “My Fingerpaint Masterpiece” is beautifully illustrated and delivered with style. Hidden throughout the illustration pages are images of the author’s other popular children’s books, a witty hello to fans of Ms. Cannon’s juvenile works. An audience of middle elementary students will appreciate “My Fingerpaint Masterpiece” and benefit from its positive message for creative minds of all ages.
My Fingerpaint Masterpiece Children’s Book – by Victoria Wagner Ross – San Diego eBooks Examiner. 4/19/14
Sherrill S. Cannon’s latest children’s book My Fingerpaint Masterpiece is done in rhyme as her previous books, Manner-Man, Gimme-Jimmy, The Magic Word, Peter and the Whimper-Whineys, and Santa’s Birthday Gift. GTMA Review has called her, ‘a modern day Dr. Seuss.’ She is a former teacher who has won eighteen awards for her five previous rhyming books along with seven published and internationally performed plays for elementary school children.
All of her books have been part of a fundraiser for the CureJM Foundation for over a year – 50 percent of the price of the books goes to the CureJM Foundation. JM = Juvenile Myositis, an incurable children’s disease. The site for that is found on her CureJM website.
Breaking news is that she is also in the process of creating the same kind of fundraiser for the imbullyfree.org non-profit group, helping to prevent bullying. My “Manners” books (The Magic Word, Gimme-Jimmy and Manner-Man) fit right into that niche!! The new site announce today will be her new website against bullying.
This delightful book, ‘My Fingerpaint Masterpiece’ is very much a story with a message for young and old alike. A budding young artist sits in art class dipping her fingers into a bowl of paint and ‘drew on the paper my very best scene’. But as she walked home from school the wind took the paper from her. It flew away. The young artist had never finished it!! How could they know it was to be her very special scene? A week later she sees it at a store. It was found and displayed in an art gallery where it won first prize!
Finally, as everyone described what they saw in the painting, our young painter shouted: ‘It’s my painting that you all are raving about!’ They just ignored her and said: ‘You’re only a child telling stories, I fear.’ It is easy to dismiss a child or anyone that it is only a story? Are children not to be believed because they are young?
It is very difficult to believe, to have trust and faith in the human spirit. Is it we do not trust ourselves? Do we not believe? Perhaps mistrust and inability to believe in a gift from the colors of the universe are the mystery that we do not understand. Perhaps it is found in the heart?
Another beautifully written book it is a masterpiece in belief. With simple hopeful colors from the rainbow swirling throughout the book for KJ and her team of artists at Kalpart it brings the story alive visually.
As her new endeavor to help prevent bullying takes off this week, I had an opportunity to interview Sherrill Cannon and get her insight on writing books for children. Part Two will be the full interview with the award winning author, Sherrill S. Cannon. Her books can be found on the websites of amazon, Barnes and Noble and her website.

They’re kids. Some are more or less immortal, some are human. They’ve got problems with school, bullies, family issues and attacks by giants. And when Asgard, the home of the gods, is threatened with utter destruction, it’s up to the children of Thor, Sif, Loki, Freya, Balder…along with some very extraordinary friends…to save it. THE AESIR KIDS tells the story of…
THRUD, the teenage daughter of Thor, who has to balance fighting trolls and giants with her after-school job waiting tables at Valhalla…
FIRE, young master of flame, the son of the three mysterious Norns and perhaps the key to saving the Nine Worlds…
MAGNI AND MODI, Thrud’s younger brothers, whose strength is matched only by their knack for getting into trouble…
ULL, the greatest skier of the gods…except for, maybe…
SKADE, the four-year-old goddess of skiing…
Then there’s TJALFI, the human boy who can run like the wind…
ROSKVA, Tjalfi’s sister, who can hear something happening many miles away…
FORSETI, the level-headed son of Balder, who’s as good with a bow as he is with a written test…
NOSS, the beloved daughter of the Goddess of Love…
HELA, the sensitive little girl who hates her destiny of growing up to be the Goddess of Death…
Along with other gods, godlings, light-elves, trolls, dwarfs and creatures, these young heroes must find a way to save the universe…and find the core of courage within themselves. THE AESIR KIDS is a fantasy novel based on many actual characters from Norse mythology. It’s the first published collaboration between author James Grant Goldin and his ten-year-old daughter, Charlotte Goldin
From a mother:
“This is a great novel for boys and girls aged 9-14. It is a fantasy story based on Norse mythology. It has a unique plot that sets it apart from other similar books. Kids who like the Percy Jackson and/or the Lord of the Rings series will enjoy this book. Highly recommended by my 11 year-old son who is a voracious reader.”
From an 11-year-old girl:
“I really loved this book! It had plenty of adventure and action, and there were all sorts of characters. Anyone who likes Percy Jackson, Greek Mythology, or of course Thor/Avengers will like this book. I recommend it highly!”
From a reader who is a total mystery to me…
“It was awesome! The best book ever!! I couldn’t set it down. Every chance I could, I would read it. Once you start, you can’t stop.”
Authors bios: I’m a writer-director of nonfiction television for channels such as Discovery, History and H2. As a writer, I was often able to work from home, and so had extra time to play with my daughter Charlotte. Among our games were made-up adventures set in the world of the Norse gods (thanks to old Thor comics!), and Charlotte would often make up new characters. When she was 8, she read my old copy of the D’Aulaires’ “Norse Gods and Giants,” and after that we began to adapt some of these games into a book format. We would go over plot points and characters, and while I did most of the typing, much of the story and several of the main characters are Charlotte’s – and she, of course, approved (or changed!) lines, plot points, etc.

Johnny the Phoenix is a book that will inspire your child to be the best that they can be, by showing them the value of hard work and persistence. There is also an alphabet activity at the end of the book, where kids take play-doh or crayons and make their worms look like the ones in the book.
The others reassured themselves, saying “I’ve seen red butterflies” or
“My dad or mom is a red butterfly. There must be red apples up there.”
After a few more hours of climbing, the worms came upon the next set
of branches. Behold, there were red apples on them, just as their parents
had said. Everyone stopped and had a few bites.
Johnny, after taking just a few bites, said to his friends, “Okay, on to
the golden ones.”
Most of the worms there said, “Johnny, you’re crazy; there aren’t any
more apples up there; just look. We don’t see them; do you?”
Johnny answered honestly, “No, I don’t see them, but my mother said
they are there and I believe her.”
This moved a few of his friends to go a bit further, but as the sun
started to go down, they said, “Johnny, there is still enough time for us
to go back down and eat and make our cocoons. We still don’t see any
golden apples; do you?”
