Her Idea

Publisher: Flying Eye Books

Review

Sozi is a super-creative little girl who loves thinking up new ideas, but she finds that good ideas are like slippery fish: difficult to hold onto. Fortunately, Sozi gets the idea to make an ideas book where she can trap all her good ideas nice and tightly between the pages, and then come back and work on them one by one until they're done.

Inspired by Rilla Alexander's own experiences of working with children who can get frustrated about finishing a story or a picture, this is a how-to book about Rilla's own practice of keeping an ideas journal. With echoes of Tove Jansson, this tremendously stylish and quirky book will inspire both with its practical message about harnessing your creativity as well as its stunning appearance.
