School Library Journal - 05/01/2019 K-Gr 2—Pencil and Eraser may be inseparable now, but that was not always the case. From the beginning of the story, Pencil is obsessed with drawing and loves working alone. Enter Eraser: a happy-go-lucky companion who sees Pencil's drawings and does what Eraser does best: erase! While Eraser believes that the select removal of some of Pencil's work makes the picture better, Pencil does not agree. Their disagreements continue until one day, Pencil, like everyone does at one point or another, makes a mistake. This mistake makes Pencil realize the potential of Eraser, and it changes the course of the book. A silly, relatable story about friendship and the importance of collaboration, readers young and old alike will love this imagining of the dynamic duo that is Pencil and Eraser. Using a blend of pencil drawings and computer generated imagery, every page provides delightful stimulation both for one-on-one readers and for larger audiences. Each character has a unique font and, due to the nature of charcoal on paper, the characters are the only parts of the page in color. VERDICT This is a fun and enjoyable story to add to library and storytime shelves.—Mary Lanni, Denver Public Library - Copyright 2019 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
