Audience: Preschool - 1st Grade
When the Biddle family is orphaned in 1841, the oldest boy, Pippin, decides to become a limner (traveling portrait painter) like his father had been. He desperately needs the funds to keep his three younger sisters from the poorhouse. Unfortunately, he paints his subjects as they appear, not how they want to appear, so he has little success. Wearily, he makes his way back home to Pennsylvania, where his sisters have a wonderful surprise in store for him!
