Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Michele Tremaine
When I was in school many decades ago, I got into trouble for turning over my tablet and drawing pictures when I was bored. Apparently there are lots of youngsters out there who still doodle away their ennui, and Susan McBride has written and illustrated a clever book to help them while away the hours. Designed to mimic the ubiquitous marbleized composition notebook, this volume hides dozens of "idea starters" to spark creativity and keep bright students from falling asleep during dull classes. In the spirit of the medium being the message, McBride's sly suggestions will appeal to the anarchist lurking in so many adolescents. This amusing little volume with its many trompe-d'oeil touches (fortune-cookie slips, coffee stains, smudged and torn letters of reprimand, and so forth) would be a welcome gift to any budding artist or bored junior high student.
