9780618246199: Not in the House, Newton!

When Newton finds a red crayon in the grass in front of his house, he just knows it's magic. Sure enough, everything he draws with it becomes real. As Newton's creations become more impressive, they cause more ruckus-until, heeding his mother's admonition, he flies the airplane he draws right out the window! The suspense of Newton's creative adventure will keep young readers glued to these pages, where the unexpected angles and daring perspectives of the luminous pastel illustrations underscore the sly humor of the text.

About the Author:

Elizabeth Sayles is a freelance illustrator and designer. Among her popular books for Clarion are Millions of Snowflakes by Mary McKenna Siddals and Five Little Kittens by Nancy Jewell. She lives in Valley Cottage, New York, with her husband and daughter.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-K?What fun! When a young boy finds a red crayon on the sidewalk, he knows there is something special about it. He draws a red ball and it bounces off the page?a surprise to both himself and his mother. "Not in the house, Newton," she says. The excitement continues as he creates a red car, a fire engine, an apple, and rubber boots. Finally, with the aid of yards of tape to join lots of paper together, he draws an airplane and flies out the window. There is a charming, childlike quality to the narration, as the youngster is not put off by his mother's inattention; he is more interested in getting on to the next picture. Whimsical pastel illustrations express his amazed look at his art taking off. This tale is reminiscent of Florence Parry Heide's The Shrinking of Treehorn (Holiday, 1971), and no wonder?it is written by her daughter.?Ronald Jobe, University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada
