You know this book is going to be unique when you get introduced to the author and illustrator before the book begins. Then you meet Chloe, a little girl, who is the main character in the book. The story begins and Chloe is collecting loose change that she would use to ride the merry-go-round in the park as many times as she could. When she headed home, dizzy from the ride, she got lost in the forest. Then a huge lion jumped out at her! Except Adam Rex, the illustrator, did not draw a lion. He thought a dragon would be a much better choice. Mac Barnett, the author, doesn’t like that idea at all and insists that this is HIS book because he is the author. The fight goes on from there, until Mac feeds Adam to the lion that a new stand-in illustrator drew for him. Unfortunately, he doesn’t really like the art of the new illustrator and also finds that he can’t draw well enough himself to fill in for Adam. What is an author to do?!
