Selling Points: "Writing, sloths, imagination"
Publisher: Orca Book Publishers
Pub Date: Apr/01/2008
Jeffrey looked at the blank page. It glared back.
His ideas came slowly, and he found himself sketching a round-bellied, long-armed sloth.
"Focus on the words," Jeffrey muttered to himself.
"Just forget about the words," whispered a voice.
Jeffrey looked around, his eyes wide. "Who said that?"
Jeffrey can't think of a thing to write, so he doodles instead, only to have his doodle begin to order him about. Jeffrey struggles with the situation until he discovers that the most strong-willed doodle is powerless against a well-told tale. Jeffrey and Sloth is bound to have children rushing for their colored pencils and their pens to see who and what they can create.
