All five of these books are creative in concept. None were illustrated by the author. And all of these books are what I call 'Loosely Plotted Concept Books' with cleverly kooky ideas. None of them have grand character arcs or follow the rule of three, but they aren't quite concept books either. Some might describe them as 'one note' at times, but that hasn't stopped them from being Best-Sellers and/or leading to sequels.
At the conclusion of ReFoReMo, Josh will be giving away a copy of POWER DOWN, LITTLE ROBOT signed by author Anna Staniszewski. To be eligible for the drawing, leave Josh a comment here, read daily, and keep a record of your progress.
