All Day


A mostly empty page. Then another. And still another. There are squiggles. There are doodles. But the words won’t come.
If you’ve ever tried to write a story of your own, you know it’s not as easy as it seems. Words get tangled, pencils get broken. After a while you’ll do anything just to distract yourself! Deborah Hopkinson’s lyrical story is about a young writer with just that problem, who finds inspiration from a surprising source. With deft illustrations by Hadley Hooper and pointers on how to write your own story, this is a book for all aspiring authors, no matter what their age.
