- DescriptionThe 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 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 t long before the complaints begin - This hat looks silly! My ears are too big! - until the poor pencil has choice but to draw ... a rubber. Oh ! In the hands of Allan Ahlberg and Bruce Ingman, can anything but havoc and hilarity ensue?
