The kids love the realistic illustrations in this book. It is a little bit "scary" for 2-3-year-olds but they still want to read it again.

A super book for pre-readers, and readers as well, that uses a realistic illustration style to tell a fantastical story. The plot is simple but the characters and story tension make it an exciting adventure. My almost 5 year old and 17 month old little boys both loved it equally, so much that we renewed it. Both kids really enjoyed helping tell the story.

Three children find a bag of chalk at the playground. Little do they know that the chalk is magical and what they draw comes to life. Unfortunate consequences occur when one of the children decides to draw a dinosaur. Can they escape being eaten?

This is a beautiful picture book, with photo-realistic illustrations and not one word of text. The whole store is told through the pictures, allowing parents to enter into a conversation with their children. Teachers will also love this book, as it provides many an opportunity for writing assignments.

Visually stunning and meticulously painted with acrylic paint and colured pencils. This gorgeous picture book lets a child's imagination run free with no text so a pre-reading child can read this book by themselves.
