Overview
Violet and Victor Small are twins on a mission: to write the best book in the whole, entire world--together Victor is reluctant, but Violet is determined, and soon the ideas can't come quickly enough.
They begin to write a story about a hungry Bookworm who is eating all the books in the library. Thanks to Victor's brilliant ideas, Violet is able to save the day (and the library).
This delightful story-within-a-story is filled with good-natured sibling rivalry, and focuses on the spirit of cooperation, the satisfaction of a job well-done, and the magic of storytelling.

Twins collaborate (sort of) to write a story in this first picture book from Kuipers (Lost for Words). Violet Small, “six minutes older” than brother Victor, is an expert speller, but she relies on him for ideas. Not that she always takes them: Victor’s idea for a story about Wilbur, “the biggest, strongest, bravest worm in the worm farm,” immediately morphs into a tale about “Violet... the cleverest, strongest, bravest girl in the whole entire school.” In color-coded mixed-media illustrations (purple elements signify Violet’s contributions to the developing story, orange for Wilbur), Murguia (I Feel Five!) creates extravagant visual representations of the possibilities that await readers (and writers) of stories: a volcano crafted of dictionary pages joins origami birds and elves and dragons that could have wandered out of one of Andrew Lang’s Fairy Books. While the twins’ relationship isn’t exactly a balanced one (Victor basically acquiesces to Violet’s inner editor throughout), it’s believable, entertaining, and likely to inspire readers to try putting their own stories together (with or without sibling input). Ages 3–6. Author’s agent: Jackie Kaiser, Westwood Creative Artists. (Dec.)
