BOOK REVIEW: Snap! by Hazel Hutchins, Dusan Petricic


What could be more perfect than a brand new set of crayons? Evan can't wait to use them, until Snap! the brown one breaks in two. Then one by one, the others break, get crushed, are blown away, or simply disappear. How can he possibly draw when there's no green, purple, or even black? 
Evan feels like throwing things, but instead, he scribbles using all the bits and pieces that are left. But what's this? Where yellow and blue cross, there's green, and when blue and red get all mixed up, it creates just the right purple to draw monsters. Soon, all he's left with are tiny stubs of red, yellow, and blue, but Evan discovers that even with just a few crayons, he can create new and exciting art--his imagination is the only tool he needs.
REVIEW BY: Angelina, age 8 years, 11 months
This book was so good! Evan, the boy in the story, got a new set of crayons and they were amazing. He lost his green crayon and he became sad. 
I give this book 5 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 4-6.
