A Squiggly Story
This book is about a boy and a girl. The girl writes stories. The boy pretends he can write. He can only write short words. The girl tells him he can start a story with a letter. He picks “I.” (I think that’s a good way to start a story. I’d start my story with an “E” for extra-terrestrial.) His story is about them playing soccer at the beach. He makes Vs for the waves. A shark comes. It’s an upside-down V. The boy gets stuck. He reads the story in the classroom. The teacher asks the class for ideas for finishing the story. One kid wants to add vampires. Will he end the story? Read the book to find out.
The illustrations are nice. The book makes me want to write my own story. Storytellers, story makers, and teachers would like this book. I think this book is best for elementary-school age kids. I can read this book myself. It’s easy. I think the end was nice, just like the illustrations. I would end the story with the kids riding the shark with a carrot on a stick.
