THE LITTLE RED PEN
by janet stevens and susan stevens crummel
The Little Red Pen must grade the papers or it's the END OF THE WORLD! She is
stressed out and asks for help, but all her school supply friends can say is, "Not I!" The Little Red Pen goes it alone and finally tumbles with exhaustion into the Pit of No Return (the trash!). Will the Little Red Pen be lost forever? Will it be the end of the world?
"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."
"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."
