Synopsis

Designed to look like a real notebook, complete with Flip's handwriting, blue lines, and a journal binding, this book is a high-spirited introduction to the joys of creativity, especially writing and drawing. And it is presented in a story that kids will clamor to read.

A pup named Flip is having a Nothing Day. Bor-r-ring. But his teacher, Ms. Flea-collar, says he has to write in his journal every day, no matter how dull it is. Then Flip has a great idea: He doesn't have to write about his real day--he can make something up! By the time he lets his imagination and markers run free, he has created a journal world full of unexpected fun and adventure where kids rule (!) and their wildest wishes come true. Employing a proven format--the journal--this book should be popular with boys and reluctant readers. Kids will flip for Flip's Fantastic Journal!
