A wonderful book about storytelling and the art of creativity with an inspiring rhyming text from James Harris (The Unbelievable Biscuit Factory) and beautiful, characterful illustrations from Mariajo Ilustrajo (Flooded).
It’s a dull day in the jungle and Artie the macaque’s friends are bored, bored, BORED!
But with paper, pens and ink, a splash of inspiration, and a pinch of imagination,
Artie creates something magical . . . a book! Filled with hordes of zombie hens, a fire-breathing dragon and robot sharks (yikes!), Artie’s newly-created book busts the friends’ boredom, and the next day they can’t wait to do it all over again.
With a clever book-inside-a-book concept, Help! We Need a Story illustrates the power of imagination and will help to nurture kids’ creative sides. Just like The Dot by Peter H. Reynolds, Beautiful Oops! by Barney Salzberg and What Do You Do With an Idea? by Kobi Yamada and Mae Besom, this is the perfect tale for book lovers and any child who enjoys creating their own stories.
