about

From the internationally bestselling creator of Wreck This Journal, a scavenger hunt that leads you to explore your world and transform your findings through creativity and chance...

Within the pages of The Pocket Scavenger, you’ll be instructed to go on an unusual scavenger hunt, collecting a spectrum of random items: something that is miniature, a stain that is green, something from the year you were born, a used envelope, and more. Once your quarry is in hand, you’ll apply an alteration dictated solely by chance: create a funny character, make it into a building, conceal it, add polka dots, remove a section, add stripes, scribble on top, fold, turn into an article of clothing, make it “pretty,” and so on.

The results: you’ll be forced out of habitual ways of thinking or acting, discover new connections, and try things you might not have done on your own, creating a version of The Pocket Scavenger that is utterly unique, dependent on time, place, experience, and you.

Praise for The Pocket Scavenger“Smith pushes kids (and adults) to break convention by seeing the world as inspiration, rather than simply ‘things.’” —GeekDad “The book encourages people to push against the boundaries of 'normal' creativity and make something unique. Even if what it tells you to do goes against your grain, do it. you'll be surprised with the results.” —Hawwa, etc.“In a world where it’s all about ‘rush, rush, rush’ from one activity to the next, faces buried in phones, author Keri Smith brings a concept designed to make you stop and look around you, and maybe even see the potential beauty in the most ordinary of objects. The Pocket Scavenger is a great tool for bringing out the creativity in all of us.” —Games FiendsPraise for Keri Smith“Keri Smith may well be the self-help guru this DIY generation deserves.” —The Believer“A conceptual artist and author luring kids into questioning the world and appreciating every smell, texture and mystery in it.” —TIME Magazine
