Rip the Page! is an invitation and a feast. Every page springs the imagination into freedom, eagerness, curiosity, the spirit of experimentation, and the power to express the abundant possibilities of both words and world.”–Jane Hirshfield, poet and author of Nine Gates: Entering the Mind of Poetry

“Alive with ideas, playful, encouraging, and full of heart, Rip the Page! will help you uncover stories of inner treasure and express them in a fresh new way.”–Susan Wooldridge, author of Foolsgold: Making Something from Nothing
