Book Review: Scribble & Author by Miri Leshem-Pelly

29 Jun

 

Title: SCRIBBLE & AUTHOR        
Author: Miri Leshem-Pelly
Publisher: Kane Miller Books
Pages: 32
Genre: Picture Book for Authors

Scribble & Author is written as a dialogue between the main character, Scribble, and the author who created her. 

Scribble’s journey starts on a peaceful shore called THE BEGINNING, continues to the rough, adventurous MIDDLE, and leads finally to the gate of THE ENDING, but it’s not at all what Scribble expected… Scribble is a scribble and Author is an author, but who really gets to tell the tale?

A picture book about finding your own voice, making your own decisions, and writing your own story.

My Review

I chose to read this book after receiving a free copy. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.

Scribble & Author is a colorful book about writing a story. It’s an unusual picture book that teaches about writing your own story and making your own decisions. It pertains to writing as well as to our lives. Scribble and the author communicate throughout the book and the author encourages Scribble to make his own decisions, therefore writing his own story.

This book is definitely one that children would enjoy as well as writers.
