“A collection of original prose and poetry that ranges from thoughtful to provocative and from experimental to really far-out….a showcase…to encourage children to literally take their own pencils outside proscribed boundaries.” Kirkus

“…the array of poets stepping up to present avant-garde approaches to writing for young writers is unprecedented; the anthology is a gift to writers of any age.” Rain Taxi

“this anthology invites young readers, all readers, to not merely see the depicted worlds of the authors but to inspect, question, and remake those worlds. Who needs “follow the instructions” anyhow? Why not write them? Why not erase them?” Carolyn Hembree, Jacket2
