Scissortown (Life Application) Paperback – October 1, 2016
"Scissortown" recounts how a neat and well-oiled community is obliged to take extreme action when over-zealous scissorers, namely the Slicers and Dicers, hit town. Beautifully illustrated, this sweet tale will enchant any child, not least through its amusing exploration of the possible consequences of a life without scissors. Bobbie Ann Cole, author of "She Does Not Fear the Snow," her personal Ruth story "I LOVE this book!" Lindsay, seven years old "Scissortown" is one of the cutest stories I have read in a long time. . . . The images are some of the best I have seen with different shapes, shadows, and old-fashioned suits on the men. There is even helpful information in the back of the book on how children can help. I LOVE the title and color image. Cindy Freland, author, "The Chesapeake Bay Adventure Series" What a delightful story! And the illustrations are wonderful. A story with a message-always important for today's "techno" young people. Doreen Lakusta, mother, grandmother, retired English teacher You probably haven't read a book like this before. Just when you think you have it figured out-you don't! The twist in the book will both entertain and educate its audiences. Rachel Sentes - freelance writer - www.gal-fridaypublicity.com The story was very engaging. The Slicers and Dicers reminded me of Dr. Seuss, and that you used a pet as the ultimate hero was fabulous. Even as an adult I wanted to know what would happen. Candace Sanderson, artist The kids thought it was so funny! They loved it! My son has taken it to bed both nights now. Heather Jones, mother of two, book lover I just completed a second consecutive children's story from a Goodreads writer and again was reminded how a skilled author of this genre can weave magic. I really enjoyed this story and loved that it had this important message for children. Yet somehow, it struck an even deeper chord for me-it reminded me of something prior, and that something was not the movie Edward Scissorhands. I noticed instead that the Slicers and Dicers brought to mind "The Blue Meanies," the nasty villains in the Beatle's movie Yellow Submarine. I could easily picture adults in the late 1960's commenting on how "far out" the story is-and that is "far out" in the very good sense-that capacity of boundless joyful imagination. This story had that for me and I give it a strong recommendation. Steve King
