The Lovereading4Kids comment
Winner of the Younger Children category - Red House Book Award 2009. This book is an hilarious and unmissable treat! One day there is just a lonely pencil…It begins to draw – a boy, a dog, a cat and then a house and streets for them to play in. But everyone wants something more. They all wants names and then they all want food. The pencil draws food but it is only in black and white. The boy and the dog and the cat want food they can eat…So, the pencil draws a paintbrush. Soon the food is delicious and there is more and more action. But then things begin to go wrong and everyone wants to be different. The pencil draws a rubber so that there can be changes…But, can the pencil survive against the rubber? Luckily, it does and all is well in the drawn world again. Both the visual and the verbal jokes are simple but very effective and the cumulative impact is fantastic.
The Pencil by Allan Ahlberg
A pencil draws a boy, a dog, a cat and a whole world for them to play in. Then the pencil draws a brush, and the brush adds colour to everything. Everyone is very happy, until the pencil draws a rubber... which begins rubbing everything out.
