The world opens up before you with the simple use of a pen! See the wild adventures of domineering giants and dancing on the clouds. Find out where else your pen can take you!

Christopher Myers illustrates a wonderful book about all of the fantastic things he can do with his single, black, pen. He can draw himself tap-dancing on the sky, he can draw an elephant peeking out of the top of a tea cup, and he can draw himself sailing to Africa in a newspaper boat. He challenges his readers to try using their own pen to see what they can draw.

A book about the power of creativity and self expression. Lovely black and white illustrations accompany a mix of creative concepts that range from humorous to deeper themes such as mistakes, friendship and war. ( )

Summary: This is a good about a boy that feels he does not amount to anything after the things he sees about all the famous and rich people on TV and in the newspaper. He quickly realizes that he can make his world whatever her wants it to be with the power of his pen. He creates a whole new, exciting world.
Critique: I think this book had a lot of detailed pictures. However, it did not flow as smoothly as I was used to with most children's books.
Prompt: This book would be a good read aloud when introducing writing and the power of writing. Students can create a whole new world with their pens and words.

The images of black and white strike out. It is the power of pen - not color. It tells stories, boosts our imagination. It had not boundary. It is a great picture to encourage people to dream, to live it out to make our life full! Christopher Meyer's painting was phenomenal. He demonstrated the beauty of boldness to step out and draw lives of our own. ( )
