She found her favourite paintbrush
and began to set the scene –
she twinkled blue and yellow stars
then sailed a sea of green.
Ivy slumped beside the moose
And huffed a troubled sigh.
Ivy is tired and frustrated but seeks help from the friendly animal.
The picture book is suitable for children aged from four to eight years old. Teachers can check out Ford Street Publishing for helpful teachers notes if the book is being used as a resource in the classroom. For example, pupils can create their own anthropomorphic characters (animals that behave like people) just like the unusual moose and whale who are personified talking to Ivy.
