- About the Book
From award-winning author Elissa Brent Weissman comes a collection of quirky, smart, and vulnerable childhood works by some of todays foremost childrens authors and illustratorsrevealing young talent, the storytellers they would one day become, and the creativity they inspire today.Everyones story begins somewhere For Linda Sue Park, it was a trip to the ocean, a brand-new typewriter, and a little creative license. For Jarrett J. Krosoczka, it was a third grade writing assignment that ignited a creative fire in a kid who liked to draw. For Kwame Alexander, it was a loving poem composed for Mothers Dayand perfected through draft after discarded draft. For others, it was a teacher, a parent, a beloved book, a word of encouragement. It was trying, and failing, and trying again. It was a love of words, and pictures, and stories. Your story is beginning, too. Where will it go?
