Book 1 in the Penny the Pencil series
Penny the Pencil is a clever little pencil who is very good at spelling and sums, but no so good at remembering the pencil case rules:
Rule Number One:
No talking while the zip is open.
Rule Number Two:
No correcting spelling mistakes.
Rule Number Three:
Anyone who breaks the rules will be expelled.
When the nasty Black Texta and his sidekick Rubber catch Penny helping her owner with a spelling test, terrible events unfold…
Illustrated by Nicky Phelan who animated and directed many Octonauts episodes, and was nominated for an Oscar!
