Do you have young storytellers or writers in your house or class? If yes, you might want to introduce them to “The Book of Untold Stories,” which is a picture book written by Sherri Maret, a local author. She is also a veteran teacher/librarian. The book has 14 illustration story starters, which are paired with information about elements of a story and writing tips. The illustrations were designed by Maret, but drawn by illustrator Thomas Hilley. The book’s publisher is The RoadRunner Press.
“I wrote down what I wanted the illustrations to look like, and the illustrator brought them to life. They are quite magical!” Maret said, adding she wished she could draw.
