About the Book

This ingenious book with colourful illustrations throughout takes everyday things – such as ink blots, fingerprints, paint drips, screwed up pieces of paper and even coffee stains – and encourages children to transform them into extraordinary things. Ink splats become aliens or bonkers birds, a piece of paper becomes an iceberg filled with penguins, and a page of palm prints becomes a herd of elephants. Children can let their imaginations run riot and, with only basic drawing skills, they can create unique masterpieces.
