Keri Smith, creator of the mega-bestselling Wreck This Journal, now brings her imagination and inspiration to children with this picture book that explores the very active experience of reading.


What if there were a book that changed every time you read it?

Actually, every book does this. We are all part of the books we read, because our individual reactions, ideas, and emotions make the book whole, and these things are changing all the time. Keri Smith has helped millions of people free their creativity and find their own voice with her interactive books, and now she brings that sensibility to children and to the act of reading. This picture book is an invitation to honor your own vision and to welcome imperfection. Kids will discover that reading can engage all five senses, and that what they themselves bring to a book is an important contribution. (And of course they’ll be invited to do a bit of harmless “wrecking”!)

New from an international bestseller:Wreck This Journal has sold more than ten million copies and been published in thirty-eight foreign territories, igniting creativity worldwide. Now elementary school kids can join in the fun!

The joy of books: This is an intriguing exploration of what makes a book a book, and why books are uniquely satisfying.

The thrill of creativity: Keri is an expert at helping people get their creative juices flowing, and this is the first time she has brought that motivation to the picture book audience.

Classroom and library potential: Librarians have reported to Keri that they hold group wreckings with her adult books. That will also be a wonderful way to make this book a group activity, even in the classroom (where it would be part of a meaningful art or writing lesson).

Keri Smith is an author/illustrator turned guerilla artist. She is the author of several bestselling books about creativity, including This Is Not a Book, How to be an Explorer of the World, and Wreck This Journal. She conducts workshops based on her books, and has illustrated for various journals, including the Washington Post and the New York Times. Keri spends her days playing with her husband and son, and divides her time between western Massachusetts and the countryside of Canada.
