Little Red (a pencil) leaves her classroom tasked with finding a story worth writing. Almost at once, she becomes bogged down by descriptors, carried away by an endless string of words full-of-stick, and frightened by adverbs "suddenly, abruptly, and surprisingly" catching her off-guard. Play on words, parody, and humor cleverly entertain and show readers how parts of speech can enrich or misguide a reader's experience. Melissa Sweet's illustrations fill every page with informative, playful visuals to perfectly round out this storytelling feast.
Publisher Summary
Once upon a time at school, a brave little red pencil set out to write an exciting story with nouns and adverbs and other interesting things--but first she had to face the ravenous pencil sharpener, the Wolf 3000.

Acclaimed writer Joan Holub and Caldecott Honoree Melissa Sweet team up in this hilarious and exuberant retelling of Little Red Riding Hood, in which a brave little red pencil finds her way through the many perils of writing a story.
