Colby Sharp invited more than forty authors and illustrators to provide story starters for each other; photos, drawings, poems, prose, or anything they could dream up. When they received their prompts, they responded by transforming these seeds into any form of creative work they wanted to share.
The result is a stunning collection of words, art, poetry and stories by some of our most celebrated children book creators. A section of extra story starters by every contributor provides fresh inspiration for readers to create works of their own. Here is an innovative book that offers something for every kind of reader and creator!
With contributions by beloved writers and artist such as Tracey Baptiste, Sophie Blackall, Peter Brown, Lauren Castillo, Kate DiCamillo, Margarita Engle, Adam Gidwitz, Chris Grabenstein, Jennifer L. Holm, Victoria Jamieson, Grace Lin, R.J. Palacio, Linda Sue Park, Dav Pilkey, Andrea Davis Pinkney, Jewell Parker Rhodes, Dan Santat, John Schu, Laurel Snyder, Javaka Steptoe and more!
