SummaryAdd a Summary
The first thing you’ll see when you open this book is a question. A page asks you upfront “Whose book is this?” Whose indeed! From the get go author Mac Barnett (who introduces himself to you on the title page) is pretty darn sure that it’s his. This belief is made clear when the story he’s telling about a girl named Chloe and the lion she encounters is derailed by illustrator Adam Rex. Adam thinks lions are boring and wants to draw a dragon. Mac, meanwhile, is pretty sure he’s the boss of this operation and when Adam won’t fall in line he hires a new illustrator (the plaid and waders wearing Hank Blowfeather) to make the lion eat Adam. Unfortunately Hank isn’t as good an artist as Adam and when Mac falls into a funk it’s up to Chloe to buck up her creator, find a way to save Adam, and end the story on a happier note.
