SCRIBBLE & AUTHOR by: Miri Leshem-Pelly

Inside the Book

Author: Miri Leshem-Pelly
Publisher: Kane Miller Books
Pages: 32
Genre: Picture Book
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.

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

I just love the dialogue between the author and his character. A very lively interaction all through the book.  Scribbles words are in bubble form where the author's words are in regular text form.  Use the book as good discussion or writing prompt.  It's a fast story from beginning, middle, to end.      The pencil and water paint illustrations set just the right mood for this adorable story.  I plan on sharing this with my summer school reading students.  I may come back and add some of their comments on the book if they give me some feedback to share.
