My pen rides dinosaurs
and hides an elephant in a teacup.
What can your pen do?

Acclaimed author and illustrator Christopher Myers uses rich black-and-white illustrations to bring a sketchbook to life, showing that with a simple pen, a kid can do anything!

Imagination is priceless. Myers's book is proof that when you have a pen, the possibilities of storytelling through art, are endless. Anything can become a picture. There is now end to imagination. Anything is possible. I love the creative message Myers shares in his book, as much as I did the illustrations. This book is like getting a sneak peak into Myer's sketchbook. 

"There are a million pens in the world, and each one has a million worlds inside it. So if you have a pen, see what you can do- let those worlds inside your pen out!"

I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves. ~ Anna Quindlen

Good children's literature appeals not only to
the child in the adult, but to the adult in the child.
