The Story Machine

by Tom McLaughlin
£6.99   paperback  Bloomsbury Publishing PLC (2015)

The Story Machine by Tom McLaughlin Elliott is a boy who likes to find things and, one day, he stumbles across a machine. At first, he can't work out what the machine is for it doesn't beep or buzz like all his other machines and it doesn't have an ON/OFF button. Then, quite by accident, Elliott makes the machine work. The machine makes letters! Elliott thinks it must be a story machine but, sadly, Elliott isn't very good at letters and words. How can he make magical stories without them?
 
But, wait, some of the letters look like pictures. Elliott is good at pictures and, as he discovers, pictures make stories.
 
An inspiring, uplifting picture book about the simple joys of a typewriter in a world of hi-tech machines.
