Suitable from about age 3 to about 6 I'd guess. My 5yo loves it and we've had it a while.

The Magic Paintbrush by Julia Donaldson.

A little girl gets a magic paintbrush, uses it responsibly, stands up to the mean emperor, daringly escapes, stands up for herself, generously shares her gift with everyone.

Lovely illustrations too.

I am so happy you posted this. I has a ladybird version of this book when I was wee and loved it. This one

I think the main character was a boy in that edition but I adored it all the same.
