Drawn Together

Written by: Minh Le

Illustrated by: Dan Santat


When a young boy visits his grandfather, their lack of a common language leads to confusion, frustration, and silence. But as they sit down to draw together, something magical happens- with a shared love of art and storyteling, the two form a bond that goes beyond words.
