"The IlluStory make-your-own book kit was a big hit with my kids. No sooner did it arrive than they were at the kitchen table writing and drawing the Great American Picture Novel." - M Lohrke, UT
"I got this as a gift for a friend's daughter who was just turning 7 years old. I got confirmation the next day that she stayed up all night "becoming an author"! I thought that was absolutely adorable. My friend said that it has easy instructions and her daughter just became obsessed with it. I love that this kit inspires children to write!" - Savi
