When Pencil Met Eraser is an inspirational origin story about how Pencil and Eraser learn to work together. Very sweet and funny!

Description


Named one of the “Best Children’s Books of 2019” by Parents magazine, this funny, clever picture book tells the true story of how Pencil and Eraser became the best of friends.

When Pencil draws on the pages of this book, Eraser erases parts of Pencil’s work, and the book itself becomes a canvas for their different takes on creativity—until the two discover their artwork is even better when they work together.

From Karen Kilpatrick, Luis O. Ramos, Jr., and illustrator Germán Blanco, When Pencil Met Eraser brings to life something kids use every day at school and at home. Engaging art, adorable characters, and a clever ending create a memorable message about friendship and creativity.

About the Author


Karen Kilpatrick has been telling and writing stories for as long as she can remember. A former attorney who left the legal industry for the toy industry, she is the author of When Pencil Met Eraser and the Pumpkinheads children's book series and cocreator with her two daughters of the toy brand, MeBears. She lives in South Florida with her three kids.

Luis O. Ramos, Jr. was born and raised in Tampa, Florida, and graduated from University of Central Florida and University of Miami Law. He's an attorney at law and a kid at heart who practices law during the day and writes and consumes stories in his free time. He and his wife currently live in South Florida with their very cute but very demanding orange cat.

Luis is coauthor, with Karen Kilpatrick, of When Pencil Met Eraser and When Pencil Met the Markers.



Germán Blanco has been using pencils all his life. Erasers, too. He unknowingly began his artistic career as a kid by doodling in school whenever he was bored (sorry, mom!). He later became a graphic designer but he found his passion in illustration. When he’s not drawing, he enjoys watching movies and playing football (aka soccer).

Germán is the illustrator of When Pencil Met Eraser and When Pencil Met the Markers.
