Rated 5 out of 5 by from Let Your Imagination Fly! Sam & Eva by Debbie Ridpath Ohi and published by Simon and Schuster Canada is a cute little story about letting your imagination run wild. Magical things can happen when you put pen (or crayon, marker, pastel, etc) to paper. When you collaborate with friends, even more magic is released into the world. Sam begins to draw what looks like a pony but is in fact a velociraptor. Eva joins in the fun and a story emerges. Unfortunately, that story gets somewhat out of hand. Thankfully, a door in the picture leads the way to a blank slate and a new story to tell. Sam and Eva is a fantastic story about letting your imagination run wild, the benefit of a good collaboration, and a reminder that we are all storytellers, through our spoken words, pictures, and written words. You really should follow Debbie Ridpath Ohi on Instagram @inkygirl. Her work is so inspiring and magical. She tells so many incredible stories through her Found Object Art. She has an beautiful collection of broken crayon art that is particularly wonderful.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Imagination and Stories go together When Eva visits Sam he is busily drawing a velociraptor. Eager to join in she suggests a collaboration. Sam has his own ideas, but so does Eva. As they draw their story progresses to a colourful clash. Soon the drawing seems to come to life and they both loose control over the plot. With quick thinking, and drawing, they find themselves a new blank canvas and work together. Fun and funny drawings fill the pages as the children use their imagination to control the plot. This would be a great way to explain to young readers how to write and illustrate their own stories.
