The Dot – Peter Reynolds

With a simple, witty story and free-spirited illustrations, Peter H. Reynolds entices even the stubbornly uncreative among us to make a mark – and follow where it takes us.

Her teacher smiled. “Just make a mark and see where it takes you.”

Art class is over, but Vashti is sitting glued to her chair in front of a blank piece of paper. The words of her teacher are a gentle invitation to express herself. But Vashti can’t draw – she’s no artist. To prove her point, Vashti jabs at a blank sheet of paper to make an unremarkable and angry mark. “There!” she says.

That one little dot marks the beginning of Vashti’s journey of surprise and self-discovery. That special moment is the core of Peter H. Reynolds’s delicate fable about the creative spirit in all of us.

About the Author

Welcome, friends. Thank you for the tremendous support of my work which includes books I have written and illustrated, as well as collaborations, like Someday with Alisan McGhee and the Judy Moody series with Megan McDonald. My children’s media company, FableVision, located in Boston, is dedicated to crafting “stories that matter, stories that move.” My twin brother, Paul, and I founded an independent bookshop in Dedham Square, MA called The Blue Bunny.

Much of my work is designed to inspire all of us to navigate our true potential – to be brave, original, inspirational, inspired, and active.

My hope is that my work will also inspire YOU to make YOUR mark – and see where it takes you.
