THE PENCIL by Allan Ahlberg and Bruce Ingman

Another great story published by Walker Books: The Pencil.
Written by Allan Ahlberg and illustrated by Bruce Ingman, it tells the story of a "lonely little PENCIL" who began to draw...
and this pencil drew a boy who asked for more things, which in turn asked for more. But everything was black and white and so the pencil drew a PAINTBRUSH.
 The pencil and the paintbrush worked well together as a team until the drawings started complaining and the pencil had to draw a RUBBER.
I cannot tell you the rest of the story: there is trouble, complication, fun.
I think this book is a must for every child's library together with Harold and the Purple Crayon and Seven Blind Mice.
