Description

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 Senorita Chincheta. But when the Little Red Pen tumbles in exhaustion into the Pit of No Return (the bin!), 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 co-operate. Will the Little Red Pen be lost forever?

Review quote

"A rollicking read-aloud, this is a book that begs to be turned into a class play, readers theater, or puppet show."--The Horn Book



"Stevens's enchanting, well-imagined, dimensional cartoon-style drawings of the office-supply characters imbue each one with a distinct personality to match their dialogic voices....This book is recommended for any classroom and should find a home in most libraries."--School Library Journal


"Will keep kids engaged, while both words and pictures create distinct, hilarious, highly animated characters from everyday objects."--Booklist

"The authors work in lots of clever wordplay that will appeal to adult readers....Stevens' delightfully expressive desk supplies were created with paint, ink and plenty of real school supplies. Without a doubt, she has captured their true personalities."--Kirkus Reviews
