Gr 2-4–In this celebration of the creative process, Henrietta receives a box of colored pencils from her mother and endeavors to write “The Monster with Three Heads and Two Hats.” Pushing past her writer’s block, the child bounces ideas off Fellini, her cat, and finally gets struck by the muse, her story unfolding in vibrant childlike drawings. This masterful graphic novel for emerging readers will delight budding artists and writers.
