Margo's Musings: Lines? Scribbles? Both?


As soon as we walked into our town library, my little sister, Margo, was drawn to a table with award nominees on it. She looked and pointed at a few and then spotted Line and Scribble written by Debora Vogrig and illustrated by Pia Valentinis. Margo grabbed it off the table and tucked it under her arm. I have to admit I was curious about it too. 



When we got home and started reading it together, we both loved it. The story involves Line and Scribble. As the story is told we see the different things each can draw or do. Sometimes we see them used to create the same object, but with their own style (like the cover). I especially love when the two friends start joining together and creating artwork that is a mix of both of them. Margo thought the pictures were fun and sometimes funny, while I was also thinking about the relationship between Line and Scribble. Definitely a clever book. The style draws your eyes in, and I especially like the red accents that could be found on the pages. 


I like that this is a book that can be read over and over again because it is both simple and complex. I would definitely recommend Line and Scribble to kids who like a great story and who like draw. I know the story inspired Margo and me to do some drawings with different styles. This was definitely an awesome find at the library. Now I will have to check back to see if it wins the award it was nominated for! 


Has anyone else read Line and Scribble? Or have you read another book written by Debora Vogrig or illustrated by Pia Valentinis? We'd love to hear your thoughts!
