The Pencil Book Loads of Things You Can Make or Do with a Pencil by Miri Flower

Inspired by the hugely successful Stick Book The Pencil Book is packed full of ideas for things to make and do with a pencil. It provides a starting point for an active imagination and brings together drawing, creating, picture making, adventures, craft, games and play. It opens up a world of creativity, with plenty of photographs to add inspiration and with fun facts dotted throughout (did you know that a pencil will write in zero gravity, upside down and under water, or that the world's biggest pencil stands at 65ft high?). Miri Flower offers creative and inventive suggestions for things to do with a pencil, including: * Making a pencil-pot * Mirror pictures * Stamping with pencil erasers * Nature walks * Using pencil shavings to make an image * Stone drawings * Doodles * Playing games * Making gifts
