    In today's tablet-filled age, many pencils and sheets of paper will be able to relate to this story. So will those of us who are still a little bit old school when it comes to writing and drawing. Jackson used to enjoy drawing illustrations with his trusty pencil, but once he receives ...

    This book is filled with puns. Pencil is a sharp guy. The story has a point. And so many more! It was really a fun story. Pencil and Jackson got along well until Tablet moved in. I think kids will really understand the humor here and relate to the story. ...

    I'm a fan of humor, word play, and layered stories, so this book is a winner. I also admire illustrations that effectively convey emotions, often accomplished through the eyes. In some picture books the eyes are richly detailed, and in some the tiniest stroke reveals all by the locatio...

    This was a cute story (love the illustrations) about how the pencil was replaced by the tablet. In today's modern world, technology is favored over the old, simple ways, like doodling with a pencil. Poor ol' pencil has been relegated to the junk drawer where he makes new friends. There...

    Like many wonderful books that personify common objects, this book has a great voice for pencil and some wonderful puns that fit with all the objects in the story. But what makes this book a bit different is the fact that it is looking at the pencil vs. tablet which is an issue we are ...

    This clever picture book reminds readers that even though our world is filled with exciting technology, sometimes the best fun comes from the simplicity of pencil and paper. Pencil and Jackson always had great fun together drawing, until Jackson got Tablet. For a while, Jackson was onl...

    I'm so tired of the "technology is bad" trope. It's not going anywhere, so maybe we can show kids how to have a healthy balance, instead. ...

    This story is full of word play, puns, and personification. The illustrations are vivid and bright. I think this is one fans of books like The Day the Crayons Quit and The Legend of Rock, Paper, Scissors will enjoy. ...

    A cute book full of puns. A pencil who feels obsolete against the digital era but with a resolution that doesn't really answer the bigger question of blending new technology with old and thus feels a bit incomplete. I like the characters and the illustration as well as the use of te...

    In my opinion the author was playing on too many puns. This made the story feel overly corny. The other thing was that the prints felt unfocused and the print was done in light grey. This made it more difficult to read. ...
