The Pencil by Paula Bossio.

December 31, 2015

pencilThe Pencil by Paula Bossio. Pub. Gecko Press, 2015.

A simple board book in similar vein to the classic Harold and the Purple Crayon. There is no correct way of saying what this book is all about, it is purely your own imagination.

For me a look at the front and back covers may provide an answer to those who want something definite.

A young girl in orange dress finds a pencil line and follows it. As she progresses along the line she experiences wonderment, fun, adventure, surprise, fear, tears, happiness and finally satisfaction with what she has done.

But is somebody stringing her along. Excellent and simple for juniors.
