Miss Hawthorn's room is neat and tidy, not a pencil or paintbrush is out of place. And that's how she likes it. And she likes trees that are colored green and apples that are painted red. Miss Hawthorn does not like things to be different or out of the ordinary. Into Miss Hawthorn's classroom comes young Willow. She doesn't color inside the lines, she breaks crayons, and she sees pink trees and blue apples. What will Miss Hawthorn think? Magical things can happen when your imagination is allowed to run wild, and for Miss Hawthorn the notion of what is art and what is possible is forever changed.Willow is the first joint writing effort for sisters Denise Brennan-Nelson and Rosemarie Brennan.

Scribbles the cat and Ink the mouse are buddies and fellow artists. Ink is excited for them to enter a "Draw a Dinosaur" contest. The prize is two tickets to a mud-themed amusement park. Ink is secretly scared of drawing a dinosaur. He urges Scribbles to have a go at it--but thinks the resulting effort looks like a prehistoric chicken. Next, Ink draws...an egg--and insists there's a dinosaur inside it. He's right! As the egg-drawing hatches, a baby dino crawls out, and starts wailing for his mommy. Suddenly, the Chick-a-saurus comes in and scoops the baby into her feathery arms. Realizing that they won't win the contest, Ink creates a "Best Buddy" trophy for Scribbles and Ink and dino-duo throw a mud party for Ink!

Scribbles and Ink

Ethan Long (author)

Publisher: Blue Apple Books ISBN: 9781609052058

Two artists, two styles, and one book that may not be big enough for the both of them. See, Ink likes things to be clean and precise. Scribbles is the opposite. But that's okay, right? Plenty of room for different kinds of artists in the world, right? Unfortunately, THEY DON'T THINK SO! And from there, paint spatters, ink goops, pencils get broken, and brushes go wild until. . . it's not a work of art, IT'S A MESS! With this much creative friction, will this disaster-piece ever become a masterpiece?
