Brush of the Gods by Lenore Look
This book tells the story of Wu Daozi (689-758), a legendary Chinese painter. He started out studying calligraphy but his brush wouldn't sit still and kept drawing animals. He practised all over town, covering walls in brilliant murals. Soon, his lifelike murals were leaping off the walls and it was said his paintbrush was from the Gods.
