Press Release (ePRNews.com) - Clark, MO - Nov 02, 2018 - Shalynn Mellerup, an adventurous lover of the great outdoors who enjoys kayaking and cooking produce fresh from her garden, has completed her new book “A Jar of Yellow Pencils”: a lively storybook about creativity and self-expression.
Mellerup shares from her book, “The yellow pencil rolled closer. Blue paint … yellow pencil, blue paint … blue paint, yellow pencil. Hmmm. The yellow pencil jumped in.
The other yellow pencils heard a splash. They looked one way, then the other. One of the pencils was missing! They heard the sound of a rubber eraser bouncing on the floor.
They gasped as the missing pencil jumped up to the desk.
‘You’re not yellow anymore!’ they cried.
‘I know,’ the pencil squeaked happily. It shook itself and looked down. ‘I’m … I’m green!’
It jumped up and down in delight.
The other pencils looked at one another. They looked at the can of blue paint. They looked at the boxes on the shelves that held ribbons and stickers and glue. They looked at one another again.
‘I get the butterfly stickers!’ yelled a yellow pencil, leaping off the desk.
‘I get the finger paints!’ yelled another.
Soon yellow pencils and not-so-yellow pencils were bouncing all over the classroom.”
Published by Covenant Books of Murrells Inlet, South Carolina, Shalynn Mellerup’s new book is a funny, gloriously creative testament to self-expression.
As the ordinary yellow pencils show their creative spirit through their paint-spattered play, children will soon be inspired to get their hands dirty on some finger paint and stickers—and maybe a few ordinary yellow pencils.
Readers can purchase “A Jar of Yellow Pencils” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, or Barnes and Noble.
