Pick It Up!

by John Townsend, Carolyn Scrace
Meet the Scribble Monsters—Inky, Blot, HB, Pablo, and Nibs. These playful and inquisitive characters will help young children get to grips with the ins and outs of good manners.

“Some little children can forget
to pick up junk behind them ...
We're here to scribble our advice
and find ways to remind them.”

This highly enjoyable and charmingly illustrated early-learning book teaches children about the importance of cleaning up after oneself and keeping places litter free. The book features good role models—the Scribble Monsters—and shows their good behavior being rewarded, both of which are key for showing children why it pays to practice good manners, improving their own behavior.

John Townsend worked as a teacher before becoming a full-time writer of children's books. He specializes in fun, exciting nonfiction books for reluctant readers, as well as fast-paced fiction and "fiction with facts" books.

Carolyn Scrace is an illustrator and writer who studied at Brighton College of Art in England. She works in advertising, animation, and publishing, specializing in children's books and art guides.
