A fussy eraser and a mischievous pencil spar in this picture book adventure.

In this funny and light-hearted picture book, a fussy eraser tries to keep the pages clean by erasing the scribbles of a mischievous pencil. But before long, the eraser discovers what can happen when two opposing forces come together to have fun. With humor and a keen eye for play, Max Amato crafts a delightful story that reveals the joys of collaborative imagination.

Editorial Reviews

* "Amato's debut features two writing tools with opposing dispositions: a yellow pencil and a pink, stand-alone eraser. One likes to make marks; the other delights in eradication...Children will be amused by the relationship and intrigued with the technique, comprehending that one can draw with a pencil and an eraser-and that opposites can co-exist." -- Kirkus, starred review
