I found this bookset very interesting. Just like the book warns you, you will find yourself doing strange, and unusual things. Most of which you aren't used to. I would reccomend this book to anyone. It's fun, and very creative. Also, very messy, and sometimes sticky. Obviously, this isn't your average book, there is no story line, the main character is you, but it's definatly one you will enjoy.

Just received this box set in the mail today. If you like to write and doodle, this is the book for you. All of three of the books included in this set are super cute and creative. I can't wait to start filling them out.

My 10 year old granddaughter loved this zany book. It encouraged her creativity, nudged her sense of humor and tickled her funny bone. This book gets kids to think outside of the box.
