Ann Ingalls will Present her New Hardcover Picture Book ~ Pencil: A Story with a Point

EVENT OVERVIEW:  Ann Ingalls, Bestselling Children's Book Author, will Present her New Hardcover Picture Book Pencil: A Story with a Point.  This Event is Co-Presented by Rainy Day Books & Mid-Continent Public Library.

ABOUT ANN INGALLS:  Ann Ingalls is the Author of more than 20 Books for children and adults, including Little Piano Girl, a finalist for the Crystal Kite Award.  Born in Cleveland, Ohio, Ann graduated from Michigan State University and worked as an early childhood and special education teacher.  She now writes full time at home in Kansas City, Missouri--except, of course, when she is busy traveling the world.

ABOUT THE NEW BOOK:  Pencil and his boy Jackson are a great pair: they draw, they sketch, they scribble.  But then Jackson gets Tablet and Pencil finds himself dumped in the dreaded junk drawer; he just can't compete with Tablet's videos, games, and movies.  How will Pencil ever reclaim Jackson's attention?  With the help of some new pun-loving junk-drawer friends (and a drooling, pencil-chomping dog), Pencil sketches out a plan to draw Jackson back into their friendship.  Ann Ingalls, Author, and former Educator, whose first Book was Shortlisted for a Crystal Kite Award, uses kid-friendly puns and an upbeat tone in this story that celebrates friendship, collaboration, and unplugged fun.  Buoyed by Award-Winning Artist Dean Griffith's always-exuberant illustrations, Pencil: A Story with a Point is a gentle reminder that technology is no match for imagination.
