My Pen by Christopher Myers

Published by Disney-Hyperion

Summary:  “All you need is your imagination,” declares the cover of the book.  Christopher Myers then goes on to explain all that his pen can do.  It can ride dinosaurs, put an elephant in a teacup, and tell stories in the margins of the pages.  Sometimes it makes mistakes, but it can draw a new face every morning.  “There are a million pens in the world and each one has a million worlds inside it,” concludes Myers.  “Let those worlds inside your pen out!”

Pros:  A fabulous celebration of creativity and imagination.  The illustrations may be Caldecott-worthy.  Kids will be inspired to get out their pens and see what they can do.

Cons:  If you’re expecting a story with this book, you’ll be disappointed.  It’s more of a creative jumpstart.
