Flip's Fantastic Journals
Author/illustrator Angelo DeCesare’s Flip’s Fantastic Journal series are curriculum based and extensively tested in classrooms in New York City. The Flip series is respected by educators and reading specialists alike, while Flip, his family, and his friends are recognizable to thousands of children across the country. Flip is based on the author himself and the characters all represent real family members and friends that surrounded him as he grew up in NYC. As a result, Angelo is able to inspire young writers to create innovative characters and fun stories based on themselves and their surroundings. Flip’s Fantastic Journal was well reviewed by School Library Journal, and was cited by Reading Today as having “all the ingredients budding diarists need to be successful in their own endeavors: honesty, creativity and the option of illustration when words fail.”
