After a long day of coloring, the markers are heading home to their boxes—but Glitter can't find her cap! As Glitter journey’s through Markertown she meets a group of repurposed markers that help her envision a different future. But can they save her ink in time?

Markertown is a story that commends kindness and friendship. It embraces upcycling not only markers but parts of ourselves along our journey. Readers should walk away, understanding that true sparkle and shine come from within. So let the mark you leave on the world be one of kindness!

With nods to Van Gogh's Starry Night, vibrant, whimsical pages, and interactive augmented reality coloring pages, Markertown is the perfect gift for children, teachers, back-to-school, or any time of year! Perfect for fans of The Day the Crayons Quit by Drew Deywalt and Not Just A Scribble by Diane Albers.

Praise for Markertown:


“A charmingly written story with wonderful rhythm and a strong message of ‘being different is okay’. Highly recommended.” –A ‘Wishing Shelf’ Book Starred Review

”Accompanied by Fox’s dynamic and lively illustrations, Markertown is a heartfelt and encouraging story about embracing your inner worth and finding new ways to showcase your talents…Readers will be inspired to pick up their own markers, and Fox features kids’ illustrations throughout the story, including a page at the end that invites readers to draw their own flag. This cheerful and inspiring story is an ode to the joy of self-confidence and will make a creative addition to any shelf. The kaleidoscopic pages render a beautiful and rambunctious marker world.” –Booklife

“The author’s secondary message about reusing resources to avoid waste—such as turning capless markers into spray paint jars or the hands of a clock—gives an environmentally responsible feel to the text. Fox’s mixed-media illustrations, with bright, painterly details, make great use of various art techniques. They also reference famous works, such as van Gogh’s The Starry Night. Solid rhymes and positive messages in a fun art class tale.” –Kirkus Review
