Meet the claymates: two balls of clay that can become anything--even best friends!
What can you do with two blobs of clay? Create something amazing! But don't leave them alone for too long. Things might get a little crazy.
In this photographic friendship adventure, the claymates squish, smash, and sculpt themselves into the funniest shapes imaginable. But can they fix a giant mess before they're caught in the act?
About the Author
Dev Petty is the author of the popular picture book I Don't Want to Be a Frog. She used to work in movies, but now she writes picture books, which are like smaller, paper movies when you think about it. Dev is great at word jumbles, makes a pretty good sandwich, and lives in the San Francisco Bay Area, which she thinks is the best place ever.
Lauren Eldridge had to take a break from sculpting blocks of cheese into cats and unicorns to write this bio. She first studied landscape architecture in school but later decided to earn a graduate degree in teaching. Lauren now builds city streets and house dragons in her basement in Madison, Wisconsin. Claymates is her debut picture book.
