For anyone who has been afraid to express themselves - from a child in art class to an adult whose fear has shut down a long-held dream, Peter H. Reynolds' book The Dot (Candlewick Press) is there to remind us all to "Make your mark, and see where it takes you."

We’ve lost count of how many editions The Dot has had -  and the number of translations into foreign languages seems to change every few months. Suffice to say, The Dot has "made its mark" around the world - and continues to do so. It's also an animated film by Scholastic/Weston Woods and FableVision. The Dot’s sequel is called Ish and is also a wonderful film.
