When it's time to write in class, one child feels like she has absolutely nothing to say. But suddenly--ker-plink--one drop, one tiny thought, hits her. And before long she's caught in a shower of funny phrases, a whirlwind of adjectives and verbs, a downpour of huge ideas. Boom, CRASH! A regular brainstorm of creativity for her to soak up and play in! With writing prompts and a glossary in the back matter, this is a story to inspire imagination and ingenuity in all readers.

School Library Journal - Brainstorm

“A great trip through a literal brainstorm that will leave readers inspired to put pen to paper (or fingers to keys).”

Kirkus Reviews - Brainstorm

“The metaphor nicely captures the creative process—from the frustration of waiting for inspiration to the anticipation of something gathering in the distance to the sought-after deluge of ideas. Entertaining reassurance and lighthearted encouragement for those tough first moments of putting pencil to paper.”
