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.

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.
