Publisher Comments:

What magic can be found in a piece of string?  The magic of a million incarnations--when the string is found by an imaginative little girl who spies it on the sidewalk.  Slither, slish--it could be the dance of a scaly dragon.  Or, push-a-pat--the top of the Great Wall of China.  Unique illustrations, inspired by Asian brush-stroke paintings, transform the simple thread into fireworks, thunderclouds, and even the moon.  

Synopsis:

A simple piece of string becomes magical in the hands of an imaginative little girl. Striking illustrations, inspired by Asian brush-stroke paintings, transform the simple thread into fireworks, thunderclouds, and even the Moon. Full color.

Jennifer Starkman, July 7, 2007 (view all comments by Jennifer Starkman)
As a little girl walks to the park with her teacher and classmates, all in a row, a squiggle of ribbon on the sidewalk sparks her imagination.
Originally written as a wordless picture book, the words of this story were added by the author only after she was inspired by a trip to China, two decades after it first appeared. Perhaps because of this, the story has a twofold impact on the reader?the stunning, brightly coloured, Asian-inspired illustrations by Pierr Morgan leading us through the little girl?s flight of fancy, while Carole Lexa Schaefer?s simple words, which evoke the sounds and feelings associated with each new idea, add an extra dimension that helps the reader really feel like a participant in the story.
The Squiggle is a wonderful book to help spark the imagination and creative instincts of even the youngest child.
