He begins to type more and more words, and amongst the words he discovers pictures. Once he starts he has so much fun that he can't stop.

Elliott is really sad but that is when he realises the most amazing thing. The machine hasn't been making up all the wonderful stories, he has!

I love this book so much. The illustrations are so lovely and the message about the value of drawing and making up stories is so important. 

We spend a lot of time drawing with our children and making up stories together, so we are all really loving this book and it has been inspiring even more drawing and stories this week.

Highly recommended! x
