The Girl Who Writes
The girl is shaped by her passion for reading, her exuberant imagination and a creative drive to write stories. Although her eyes are open to the world around her and to the wealth of stories she was born into, her journey of becoming a writer is not a smooth one. Along the way she learns the satisfaction of a well-chosen word, the importance of self esteem, and the wonder and beauty of life, real and imagined. Featuring the striking voice of a lively young person, this rich tale is a must for budding writers as well as for readers who cherish the endless possibilities of words. A timeless story, the text is framed by Richard Cole’s masterful landscapes and brought to life by his innovative drawings and mixed media style. The book’s layered design draws from early twentieth century life and lore.
