Picture Book Challenge, Day 2: The Boy with the Angry Stomach

I’m in day two of the National Picture Book Writing Week (NaPiBoWriWee — that’s a mouthful, eh?)  with Paula Yoo, and again, I turn to Storybird for the art and inspiration. In this book, I imagine a storyteller (a piece of bread!) telling the tale of a young boy learning about anger. The story emerged from looking at the picture on the cover here. I wondered: what would a face in your stomach say to you? And what would the kid think? From there came The Boy with the Angry Stomach.

  1. Nice idea… I think everyone can relate to the idea of something living in the pit of their stomach, cause that’s exactly what it feels like. I also really appreciate you sharing the site, cause it’s a neat one. I went to it, just intending to check it out… not feeling creative at all, and then, before I knew it, a story had been created. It’s here, in case you want to see what you inspired:

    Thanks again for sharing.
