The acclaimed duo of Allan Ahlberg and Bruce Ingman team up to imagine the comical world that comes to life when a lonely pencil starts to draw. From the acclaimed duo behind The Runaway Dinner and Previously comes a playful, witty story about the power of imagination.

Welcome back Banjo, the boy from The Runaway Dinner!

Once a pencil draws him, there's no telling what will come next - a dog, a cat, a chase (of course), and a paintbrush to colour in an ever-expanding group of family and friends.

But it's not long before the complaints begin - "This hat looks silly!" "My ears are too big!" - until the poor pencil has no choice but to draw ... a rubber. Oh no! In the hands of Allan Ahlberg and Bruce Ingman, can anything but havoc and hilarity ensue?
