Bear's Magic Pencil

Publisher: HarperCollins Children's Books

Review

The result of a competition encouraging children to draw as a way of making stories, this book perfectly illustrates how a pencil can create narrative paths. Browne’s distinctive style is juxtaposed with children’s drawings, producing an inventive, continually unfolding story. And naturally, there’s a gorilla!
