Walker Books – The Dot: Creatrilogy (Picture Book)
One little dot marks the beginning of Vashti’s journey of surprise and self-discovery in Peter H. Reynolds’ multiple award-winning modern classic.
In this inspiring, award-winning story of self-expression and creativity from Peter H. Reynolds, illustrator of Ish and the Judy Moody series, Vashti thinks she can’t draw. But her teacher is sure that she can. She knows that there’s creative spirit in everyone, and encourages Vashti to sign the angry dot she makes in frustration on a piece of paper. This act makes Vashti look at herself a little differently, and helps her discover that where there’s a dot there’s a way… With wit, charm and free-spirited illustrations, Peter H. Reynolds encourages even the stubbornly uncreative among us to make a mark – and follow where it takes us.
“A real can-do book…Feisty drawings make this book enjoyable to look at and empowering to cynical little souls who just can’t do stuff, and don’t care either. * The Guardian * …the quirky little story reminds children (and their parents) that whatever it is you can do, you should just get on and do it.” – The Observer
