The Little Red Pen

Front Cover
Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Trade & Reference Publishers, 2011 - Juvenile Fiction - 56 pages
Poor Little Red Pen! She can't possibly correct a mountain of homework all by herself. Who will help her? "Not I!" says Stapler. "Not I!" says Eraser. "¡Yo no!" says Pushpin, AKA Señorita Chincheta. But when the Little Red Pen tumbles in exhaustion into the Pit of No Return (the trash!), her fellow school supplies must get themselves out of the desk drawer and work together to rescue her. Trouble is, their plan depends on Tank, the rotund class hamster, who's not inclined to cooperate. Will the Little Red Pen be lost forever?

There's no lack of trial and error, hilarious chaos, and creative problem-solving in this mission! Kids—and adults—will never see their school supplies in quite the same way again.

I thought this book was cute. I loved this book because of the illustrations. She is an amazing artist. This might be a good book during revising and editing but could also be a good shared reading for expression! Read full review

This book was alright, but there was a lot of words on each page and I felt there was so much going on from page to page that my eyes were darting everywhere. The faces of the personified school supplies were a bit creepy too. Read full review
