ALL ABOUT Peter’s CREATRILOGY

The Dot
Written and illustrated by Peter H. Reynolds
Published by Candlewick Press

Vashti is not an artist. She jabs at a blank sheet of paper to make an unremarkable and angry mark. “There,” she says. That one little dot marks the beginning of Vashti’s journey of surprise and self-discovery.

Ish
Written and illustrated by Peter H. Reynolds
Published by Candlewick Press

Ramon loves to draw and It makes him happy but, in one split second everything changes. A single reckless remark by Ramon’s older brother, Leon, turns Ramon’s carefree sketches into joyless struggles. Luckily for Ramon his little sister, Marisol, sees the world differently. She opens his eyes to something a lot more valuable than getting things just “right.”

Sky Color
Written and illustrated by Peter H. Reynolds
Published by Candlewick Press

Marisol loves to paint. So when her teacher asks her to help make a mural for the school library, she can’t wait to begin! But how can Marisol make a sky without blue paint?

The Water Princess

Written by Susan Verde, illustrated by Peter H. Reynolds
Published by G.P. Putnam’s Sons Books for Young Readers

Princess Gie Gie’s kingdom is a beautiful land. But clean drinking water is scarce in her small African village. Gie Gie cannot bring the water to her kingdom. Every morning, she rises before the sun to make the long journey to the well. Instead of a crown, she wears a heavy pot on her head to collect water.  And she dreams. She dreams of a day when her village will have cool, crystal-clear water of its own.

Going Places
Written by Paul A. Reynolds, illustrated by Peter H. Reynolds
Published by Atheneum Books for Young Readers
