series name:
Creatrilogy

Ramon loved to draw. Anytime. Anything. Anywhere.

Drawing is what Ramon does. Itıs what makes him happy. But in one split second, all that changes. A single reckless remark by Ramon's older brother, Leon, turns Ramon's carefree sketches into joyless struggles. Luckily for Ramon, though, his little sister, Marisol, sees the world differently. She opens his eyes to something a lot more valuable than getting things just "right." Combining the spareness of fable with the potency of parable, Peter Reynolds shines a bright beam of light on the need to kindle and tend our creative flames with care.

A creative spirit learns that thinking "ish-ly" is far more wonderful than "getting it right" in this gentle new fable from the creator of the award-winning picture book THE DOT.

author’s comments:
Peter H. Reynolds is the president and creative director of FableVision Studios, the illustrator of the best-selling Judy Moody series, and the author and illustrator of THE DOT. "Nothing irks me more than seeing a person's creativity get shut down," he says. "Through my books, I want to help give kids -- and grown-up kids -- the vocabulary to protect their exploration, in art, writing, and thinking."
