MONDAY: Chloe and the Lion

Max Barnett is writing a story about a girl named Chloe and a lion. But the illustrator, Adam Rex, thinks a dragon would be cooler a lion. Poor Chloe is left in the lurch as author and illustrator fight over who's in charge of the story.

4.5 out of 5 stars

What a fun story! Great text for talking about the roles of the author and the illustrator in a light, fun way. I will definitely be using this with my writing students and also with my library students when we talk about authors and illustrators. I'm thinking 2nd graders and older would get the most from this story in a classroom/library setting.
