Welcome to Scribbleville, where everything is made entirely of wiggles, squiggles, and scribbles. Straight lines are nowhere to be found, and the people of Scribbleville like it that way! Until the day an odd-looking stranger arrives . . . He is as straight as a stick. He builds a square house with a pointed roof.Wherever he goes, people stare and think: Someone should tell him he doesn’t belong! And perhaps he doesn’t. Until one child looks beyond the edges and sees what others cannot.

Peter Holwitz’s simple fable and childlike illustrations speak equally to children and adults about the beauty inherent in differences. Share it with that special scribbler in your life.

/ There’ll be more of them than there are of us!” It’s a little heavy handed, but lines like these are bound to spark discussion.
