I absolutely adored this tale of an nine-year-old boy and his magic pencil. It's a story of growing up, learning how to share, and developing friendships. Daniel, the quintessential boy, doesn't like homework or meatloaf, so he sets out to draw and thus create his own pizza making, math homework doing machine - the Pi-zzabot. Who wouldn't want that?
Throughout the story, he and his only friend Annie create many fun objects and creatures that spur the imagination and keep readers wondering what they will think of next.
I truly could relate to Annie. I can remember being a tom boy, swearing off dresses, and anything the color pink. She ate a worm; I fried ants with a magnifying glass. (Sorry ants!)
This story is enjoyable for people of all ages, which is truly amazing. Sometimes I have trouble getting into middle grade books, but not this one. It was funny, entertaining, and creative. The audio version is the perfect listen for your next little road trip.
Daniel the Draw-er is available for purchase for eReaders and as a paperback at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, or in S.J.'s store.
The audiobook version is also available at Amazon, Audible, and iTunes!
