Product Details

Praise

“A series of cleverly crafted tales involving a precocious girl doing ordinary things in a creative and energetic manner. Nine ‘shorter-than-ever’ stories of a dozen words or less, become considerably more sophisticated when readers delve into Koehler’s dynamic cartoon illustrations…. Dotlich and Koehler are ideally teamed up and offer a genius method of encouraging narrative dialogue, as well as attention to text…. These very short stories are ideal for sharing, providing opportunities for word recognition and writing prompts, dialogic reading, and narrative discussion.” –School Library Journal

“Retro, digitally created illustrations are clear and uncluttered, yet provide ample details that allow readers to fill in the gaps of these oh-so-brief tales….this entertaining collection shows that storytelling can be easily accomplished and can consist of more than just words.” –Booklist

“Koehler builds each story around an interaction between the giant typography and the plot, so that a very simple recounting (‘One day… I went to school. I came home. The End.’) becomes far sillier and involved…. Koehler’s drawings have an easygoing sense of whimsy as they highlight just how much can happen in the briefest of stories.” –Publishers Weekly

“In this collection of stories that are both tiny and substantial, words, pictures, and book design dance with one another in a way only possible in a picture book…. (t)he text is graphically dynamic.” –The Horn Book
