The Magic of a Boy and a Typewriter

We’re suckers for stories about imagination and curiosity and fell head-over-heels for The Story Machine, a gorgeously illustrated tale about the simple magic of a boy and a typewriter.

Elliot lives in a high-tech, modern world, so when he encounters an old-fashioned typewriter, he struggles to make it work. Comical persistence and a happy accident later, he’s figured it out and is typing up imaginative stories –– illustrated cleverly using typography as image. But he now believes the magic is in the machine and has to discover that his creativity comes from within.

An ageless story of self-discovery and the power of imagination fueled by relentless curiosity. The Story Machine will charm both kids and kids at heart. A definite must read by one of our favorite author/illustrators, Tom McLaughlin.
