This book? Is so neat! (Yes, pun intended). A scribble starts out as a baby, but practices and practices, and soon grows up to be a neat line (the illustration for this transition is fabulous). He is then able to wriggle into a real (nursery rhyme) book. Throughout the following pages, the neat line meets well-known nursery rhyme characters and helps them out of sticky situations by reshaping himself into something else. He learns how hard it is to be a neat line, and is relieved to arrive at the final page and find it blank so that he can end his day. Very clever. You’ll want to pick this one up. ( )

A line grows up to be neat, and helps the characters in the Mother Goose nursery rhymes by drawing himself into different objects that we would be helpful.

"Once upon a time there was a scribble. The scribble was only a baby." But it grew up into a line -- a neat line -- who decides to go into a real book, Mother Goose's Nursery Rhymes, where it helps Little Boy Blue by becoming a horn, and Jack and Jill by becoming a pathway, and Contrary Mary by becoming a rain cloud to water her flowers, and Miss Muffet by becoming a bird to scare away the spider. Finally it draws itself into the Man in the Moon and goes to sleep.

Genre: Fantasy/Poetry
Age Appropriateness: primary, intermediate
Media: colored pencils
Review: This is a good example of fantasy and poetry, because the line has a human personality and travels from nursery rhyme to nursery rhyme to help the people/characters with the problem they are faced with. ( )
