Imagine a City is a gorgeous new book so here’s a challenge to go with it


Imagine a City is a very beautiful picture book by Australian, Elise Hurst (Scholastic). The story is simple but magical as Elise imagines a different world on a trip to town.  Check out her cool blog here.

Elise has done pen and ink drawings which are equally magical. I love them because they look handmade. They are handmade! They look a bit old fashioned and I love that about them too.To celebrate the book I challenge you to write a poem called ‘Imagine a City.’

I have one in The Letterbox Cat and it is called ‘Cloudsville.’

We have had similar challenge before but that’s okay.
