Will a prehistoric chicken win the prize?
They’re drawn back together again for more artistic shenanigans! This time, Scribbles the cat and his
buddy, Ink, decide to enter a “Draw a Dinosaur” contest.
The prize? Two tickets to Mudsplash Mountain—“The Muddiest Place on Earth!” But as in art and life, nothing goes as planned. Will a chick-a-saurus, a big egg, and a bigger surprise dash their dreams?
The Contest offers four short chapters that keep this 72-page story within reach of emerging independent readers—kids who want to move beyond picture books but are not ready for text-heavy chapter books.
For kids with an artistic inclination, the book portrays the pleasures and pitfalls of creative collaboration.
For all kids, there are plenty of surprises, silliness, and the discovery that one-plus-one is twice as fun!
Ethan Long won the 2013 Theodor Seuss Geisel Award for Up, Tall, and High! He also created Disney’s “Tasty Time with LeFronk” and two previous Scribbles & Ink book-adventures. Only he knows for sure what the buddies will do next—but sources report it will involve a large box of cheese. Mr. Long lives with his family in Orlando, Florida.
