"Flip's Fantastic Journal" is a book that is set up to act as an actual journal for the main character Flip. Starting off as a school assignment that Flip isn't too excited about because he doesn't like to write, he keeps his entries rather short but writes a lot about his day overall. On Saturday he states that his day was very boring and lonely because his friend couldn't play with him and so he was forced to play with his sister who ditched him for her own friends. All of a sudden he remembers that his teacher said he could write a make believe entry in it if he wanted. So he imagined his day going better in new and different ways.

Since the book is set up like a journal, the structure of the book is similar to that of an elementary student actually writing in a journal. This includes the font, images, grammar and spelling that would be found by actual elementary students. When reading this book it encourages a child's imagination. For the first half of the book, when Flip is discussing his actual life and what is happening in his reality, the drawings are in black and white. However when he imagines his perfect Saturday, he borrows his sister's markers and makes it colorful to represent a more exciting day.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0140566554, Paperback)

Flip likes to draw. Flip likes to play. What Flip doesn't like to do is write, and now his teacher says he has to do it every day. First he writes about what really happens, but that's no fun. Then Flip remembers that his teacher said he can write whatever he wants in his journal--he can even make things up! So Flip starts all over again. Now when his sister tries to wake him up too early, his pet dinosaur scares her away. And instead of playing on a swing alone at the park, he slides down a rainbow with all of his friends. By the end of the day, Flip loves writing. Designed to look like a real notebook, this book is the perfect fuel to get reluctant journal-keepers off and writing.

* A Picture Puffin

Feeling that he has very little to write about in his journal, Flip uses his imagination to turn a nothing day into a something day.
