Does a pencil really need an eraser? Not according to Pencil. Everything Pencil draws is already perfect--no erasing needed. But Eraser has some different ideas. Cue a battle of the wills where Pencil soon discovers that what it puts on the page gets even better when Eraser takes some away. This hilarious and clever picture book lets Eraser show Pencil--and the rest of us--how to try new things, see the sky through the trees, and form an inseparable friendship with someone who might at first seem like your worst enemy. In the spirit of The Day the Crayons Quit, When Pencil Met Eraser enlivens something we all use every day with engaging art, adorable characters, and a clever ending. The result? A funny, effective message about friendship and creativity.
