Product description

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! Once a pencil draws him, there's no telling what will come next - a dog, a cat, a chase (of course), and a paintbrush to colour in an ever-expanding group of family and friends. But it's not long before the complaints begin - "This hat looks silly!" "My ears are too big!" - until the poor pencil has no choice but to draw ...a rubber. Oh no! In the hands of Allan Ahlberg and Bruce Ingman, can anything but havoc and hilarity ensue?

We've been completing the NSW Premier's Reading Challenge and came across this book. It was so nice to find a book that was funny and entertaining, easy to read, and even exciting! It had our whole family entertained. Makes the love of reading easier. Highly recommended!

The genius of Ahlberg meets the illustrations of Ingman. Wonderful, funny and full of creative twists in equal measure. Perfect picture book. Was shortlisted for the Roald Dahl Funny Award.
