Once upon a time,  there was a little red pen which looked remarkably like a very busy, tired teacher! The desk was filled with uncorrected papers and she worried that her students might not be sure they had learned the lesson. What to do?  Awful, awful things might happen (even – gasp – the end of the world) if she didn’t get those papers marked. She asked the other office supplies to help, but they all had their excuses and said,“No.” But when the little red pen fell into “The Pit of No Return,” they all pulled together to get the work done.  A clever scheme involving paper clips and a hamster plus a lot of hard work will get you rooting for the whole gang as they learn to cooperate for the rescue.  (Pennsylvania Young Reader’s Choice Awards Program Booktalks 2012-2013)
