The acclaimed duo of Allan Ahlberg and Bruce Ingman team up to imagine the comical world that comes to life when a lonely pencil starts to draw. From the acclaimed duo behind The Runaway Dinner and Previously comes a playful, witty story about the power of imagination. Welcome back Banjo, the boy from The Runaway Dinner!
