"In the outrageously amusing If Found Please Return to Elise Gravel, Elise Gravel offers readers a sneak peek into her sketchbook, where colorful monsters, imaginary friends, a grumpy things reign supreme. Meet Donald, who sings off-key; Francine, who likes to eat stones; and Marvin, the man with lots of stuff in his beard. Mixing the real with the fantastical, Elise's drawings exude curiosity, as microbes and mushrooms share the page with speckled pepper pops, gloppers, and floofs. Filled to the brim with vibrant felt marker illustrations, If Found& is not just an exhibition of Gravel's work, but a challenge to young artists to keep a daily sketchbook. She reveals her top tips to becoming a successful illustrator--practice! practice! practice!--while empowering young artists to face their fears of making 'ugly drawings.' Stop worrying about what makes a drawing good or bad--Elise draws anything and everything and you can too!"--Amazon.com.

No, story here -- Just a lot of random thoughts and doodles. And although my 7-year-old rarely tolerates this kind of thing, in this case he was very charmed by the cute, quirky illustrations. He was inspired to do much more drawing and journaling.
