Description of this Book

Fuzzy started as a scribble, just a scrawly little doodle, a smudgey sort of something at the bottom of the page. He nibbled, chomped and gobbled scrumptious words and tasty colours. They made Fuzzy grow ... and grow ... and GROW! Hello!

- A cleverly told story of how a little doodly scribble turns first into words and then metamorphoses into
a book
- Szymanik's story is fun to read aloud, and her evocative language will delight readers, young and old
- The exquisite art work by Donovan Bixley will stimulate young minds

Melinda Szymanik is the author of Scholastic picture books The Song of Kauri (a 2015 Storylines Notable Book), The Were-Nana (2009 Children's Choice winner at the NZ Post Children's Book Awards), and Clever Moo. Melinda has also had two novels published by Scholastic NZ: A Winter's Day in 1939 (junior fiction finalist in the 2014 NZ Post Children's Book Awards), and Jack the Viking.

The three books were Scholastic titles Dragon Knight: Fire!, Little Red Riding Hood ... Not Quite, and his debut comic book/novel as author and illustrator, Monkey Boy, which took out the top prize for junior fiction. Donovan lives in Taupo with his wife and three daughters.
