There's A Book

The Pencil by Allan Ahlberg and Illustrated by Bruce Ingman

Recommended by Christopher Healy from KidPop…and Beyond as well as the author of the upcoming new novel, The Hero’s Guide to Saving Your Kingdom (which you should also plan to read by the way).

“One day that little pencil made a move, shivered slightly, quivered somewhat . . . and began to draw.”

Welcome back Banjo, the boy from THE RUNAWAY DINNER! Once a pencil draws him, there’s no telling what will come next — a dog, a cat, a chase (of course), and a paintbrush to color in an ever-expanding group of family and friends. But it’s not long before the complaints begin — “This hat looks silly!” “My ears are too big!” — until the poor pencil has no choice but to draw . . . an eraser. Oh no! In the hands of Allan Ahlberg and Bruce Ingman, can anything but havoc and hilarity ensue?

The creators of THE RUNAWAY DINNER and PREVIOUSLY team up to imagine the comical world that comes to life when a lonely pencil starts to draw.
