KIRKUS REVIEW

 An earnest little lecture of a book (one of the Redfeather series) whose two morals are: ``If at first you don't succeed...'' and ``If you want to learn how to do something, watch an expert.'' It's an amiable enough story about third-grader Alvin, who can't draw but must produce something to be displayed on Parents' Night at school--but it's also preachier than any young reader is likely to sit still for. Illustrations not seen. (Young reader/Fiction. 6- 9)
