Book 2 in the Penny the Pencil series
Having overthrown Black Texta and his evil sidekick Rubber, Penny and her friends can get on with helping Ralph with his schoolwork.
But someone is writing graffiti on Ralph’s school books and vandalising Sarah’s entry in the school colouring competition.
With help from Sarah’s pencil Polly, Penny goes undercover to find out who is committing these dastardly deeds. After close calls in the pencil cases of Lucy the Stealer and Sean the Chewer, Penny and Polly stumble across the lair of the evil culprit, and discover that it will take all their ingenuity to save not only themselves, but all the children in Ralph’s class from the evil plot.
