I love the unique style and story in this book, and how Ike creates his own perfect ink for his story. :) This book is imaginative, creative, and fun!

Reading contracts all day long. Not bad, but not quite as fun as reading about hobbits.

Ike’s Incredible Ink is a fun book about writing a book. Meta, right? Like so many writers, Ike wants to write, but it doesn’t take long before writer’s block stares him straight in the face and he looks for distraction. I think most of us can relate to that feeling, and it’s a great introduction for talking with children about procrastination, about creativity, and about stick-to-it-iveness.

This is a fun and quick read, and my kids especially enjoy the clever details in the illustrations on each page—things like the lid left off the blender, or the X scratched over a drawing of Pluto. I find the story a little thin, but it’s still a decent book all around.
