Author(s): Allan Ahlberg; Bruce Ingman
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.
"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?
One of the most acclaimed authors of children's books, Allan has written nearly 140 titles for children. A critically acclaimed author and illustrator, winner of the 1996 Mother Goose Award as the most exciting British newcomer to children's picture books.
