The Dot
by Peter Reynolds


Vashti is frustrated. She's not an artist. She can't draw. So she jabs at a blank sheet of paper to make an unremarkable and angry mark. "There!" she says. Yet that one little dot marks the beginning of Vashti's journey of surprise and self-discovery.

With a simple, witty story and free-spirited illustrations, Peter H. Reynolds entices even the stubbornly uncreative among us to make a mark-- and see where our creativity takes us.
