This picture book is a gentle story about finding your creative spark.
Tapir wants to express himself, but he can't find the words!
He and his friends all have nice new notebooks, just waiting to be filled.
Giraffe decides to write a poem, Hippo writes a story, and Flamingo composes a
beautiful song. But poor Tapir can't think of anything to write - and the
harder he tries the more upset he becomes! But everything starts to change when
Tapir stops trying to write and begins to draw...
Marge Loch-Wouters of School Library Journal nicely summarizes "The seemingly simple,
rhythmic text blossoms into a tender story of longing and accomplishment. The
universal theme of discovering one's special talent is explored in this tale of
friendship and the power of creativity."
