Scribble & Author Blog Tour with review


Author: Miri Leshem-Pelly

Publisher: Kane Miller Books

Pages: 32

Genre: Picture Book for Authors

Scribble &
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

Book Excerpt:

A color spot,
some pencil lines,
and here you are…
Hi, who are
Hello Scribble.
I’m the author,
and I’m here to help you create your journey.
Let’s start at the
Wow, Author,
you’ve created a beautiful beginning!
Where do I go
Well, it’s your
journey, so it’s up to you.
What would you
like to do?

My Review:
This is a super quick story to read. It's about Scribble who is a scribble and Author who actually is writing the book and also made Scribble. In the story Scribble basically comes to life and wants a friend. Author takes Scribble back to the beginning of the story and helps Scribble overcome his fears on his journey to find a friend. 

This book helps with overcoming fears in a way that makes Scribble think for himself. I personally love children's books that include a lesson of some sort and this ones gently takes on fears. Miri Leshem-Pelly has done a great job with this book and the illustrations are really fn as well. They each feature some type of art giving Scribble a situation to overcome, like climbing a mountain. Each picture also includes some sort of an art supply like paintbrush, tape, and even pencil shavings. 

I was given my copy of the book from the Author for reviewing purposes. These are my own thoughts on the book though.
