From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 2–Everything–and everyone–in Scribbleville is made out of curving, squiggled lines. When a man who is straight as a stick moves in, the residents are mistrustful because he looks all wrong. After a scribbled woman befriends him, she is harshly judged, and an angry mob gathers to protest the immigration of other straight individuals. Fortunately, a thoughtful child unites the townspeople by drawing a picture–Some of it scribbled,/and some of it straight. From this point on, relations between scribbles and straights are much improved, and soon some new folks move in–Some scribbled–some not. The whimsical stick-figure illustrations, done in pencil, Magic Marker, and chalk on vellum, are the real attraction in this book. Holwitz maintains an elegant balance between order and chaos, achieving a highly stylized version of a child's scribble. The text, unfortunately, is not as well executed. The bouncy, rhymed couplets belie the seriousness of the theme, and the resolution is too pat. While youngsters sometimes do lead the way to the reconciliation of differences, the journey is seldom as smooth as the road to Scribbleville.–Rachael Vilmar, Atlanta Fulton Public Library, GA
