Line and Scribble

Chronicle. May 2021. 64p. Tr $18.99. ISBN 9781797201870.
K-Gr 2–A pair of opposites cooperatively coexist in this engaging picture book. Line is straight, while Scribble is not. Line travels straight via plane or train, whereas Scribble wanders; Line enjoys “elegantly” straight hair, while Scribble styles hers with bouncing curls. The pair initially express themselves and create independently before establishing a cheerful dialogue. As the story progresses, readers will enjoy seeing Line and Scribble join forces to create fresh and inventive things together. With only a sentence or two per spread, this is an ideal choice to read aloud and will certainly spark the imaginations and creativity of listeners and readers. The limited palette includes only the white of the paper, lines and scribbles in black, and vibrant red text, which delightfully increases in size as the story progresses.
VERDICT A delightful celebration of individuality, creativity, and friendship; a valuable addition to most collections.
