What's Lost for Words About

Publisher Summary

Tapir wants to express himself, but he can’t find the words!

Tapir and his friends all have nice new notebooks, just waiting to be filled. Giraffe decides to write a poem, Hippo writes a story, and Flamingo composes a beautiful song. But poor Tapir can’t think of anything to write ―and the harder he tries the more upset he becomes! But everything starts to change when Tapir stops trying to write and begins to draw.

This gentle story from author and illustrator Natalie Russell will inspire even the littlest artists to find their creative spark.
