This was a fun book about a book! The illustrations are fantastic and the story is engaging and easy to follow. Would be a good read aloud but also good for a read to self selection.

This is the story of a girl who does not know what her story is and so she decides that she is going to write her own story and make her own destiny.

A little girl realizes everyone around her has a story. She sets out on a journey to find her own. She travels with a goose, looks at many fairytales, looks into outer space, and even different time periods to find what her story is. But the little girl realized that she can choose to write her own story and decides that it can be whatever she wants it to be. ( )

An interesting take on what it means to be a book. The characters are aware that they are in a book, but all have different ideas about what the story is about. The little girl doesn't know her own story and sets off to find it. She finds many things that are NOT her story and eventually decides that to find her story, she had best write it herself.

This book would be wonderful to use to teach genres in an exciting and fun way! I have never heard of this book before and I can see myself using it every year to introduce genres.

With loving gratitude to Donald Graham and Richards Ruben from whom I learned everything about drawing that can be taught.
