    so, first of all I didn t know until this book that Janet and Susan are sisters blush The Little Red Hen meets Office Depot This of course lends itself to all sorts of puns and funny characters the pushpin made me laugh aloud , silly illustrations LOVED all the excuses on why they can t help the little red pen grade the papers Great concept with lots of potential, however I think the story could have been edited a little Nice message about individual talents helping the team Super great idea for an end of the year teacher gift

    A very odd book It doesn t seem suited to young children mine would have been upset by the pin stabbing the hamster , but it s too simplistic and repetitive for adults I didn t find it at all funny and some of the illustrations were rather creepy There are lots of enthusiastic reviews on Goodreads, however, so perhaps it s just me.

    Wordplay runs amok in Janet Stevens latest picture book It s the old story of Little Red Hen retold, sort of, but then again, it s completely different Sitting atop a paper cluttered teacher s desk, Little Red Pen rushes to get papers graded If they don t get the papers graded, she says, the students won t learn, the school might close, the walls might tumble, the floor might crumble, the sky might fall, it might be the end of the world Who will help me save the world But from Stapler, Eraser, Scissors, Pencil, and all the other desk tools, all she hears is, Not I Stapler can t because people keep pounding on him and his back might be broken Pencil can t because he doesn t want to get sharpened down to a nub who needs a nub Eraser can t becausewhat was the question He can t remember his head is getting smaller In her attempts to grade the papers herself, Little Red Pen falls into the pit of no return the trash can Is this the end of the world Oh my goodness, sooooo many puns Clever, clever, clever, that Janet Stevens The particular skills of each desk tool prove to be useful than even they thought as they pool their resources to rescue Little Red Pen Give a copy of this book to your favorite teacher She might just use her little red pen to mark a big, smiling, happy face on your next paper For a little taste of the wit here, watch the trailer.

    I have enjoyed all of Janet Stevens and Susan Stevens Crummel s work and they are hilarious personages, but this book was a disappointment The distinct personalities for each tool in a teacher s desk were funny, but the idea that students will not learn if their papers are not marked up by the little red pen annoyed me.

    When the Little Red Pen rolls off the desk, and into the pit of no return the other school supplies in the drawer put together a rescue mission to save her from the pit, and save the known world in the process.

    I didn t know what to expect with this one and I was surprised at what I found I m also surprised this is the first of it s kind that I ve come across In my experience too many bubble texts can easily take away from the story This story has a lot I guess I like to just read straight through without having to worry about extras but the whole speech in a bubble thing should be saved for comics for the most part IMHO Susan Stevens Crummel s illustrations work perfectly with the storyline I can t think of one single illustrator who I could say I d have rather liked to see illustrate here As far as I know this is the first we ve read from Janet Stevens and even without the negative that I mentioned above I can tell Stevens is talented Hopefully, if she has other books, they aren t all along the lines of this one This is good, not great but it s bound to get a great many 4 and 5 star ratings and glowing reviews Update we rechecked this out of the library and read it again on 8 12 11 Because Mommy didn t remember ever reading it before and because Mommy didn t listen to Julia that we had in fact read it I liked it better this time around but I can t help but find it telling that I forgot it so completely in less than a few months Especially since it s really not a very common looking book Oh well, it was a little better the second time around.

    I enjoyed this read It is funny The Red pen is grading paper during the night Although she asks for help, no one will When she falls into the trash can accidently the others eraser,scissors, stapler, ruler, highlighter try to help grade the papers but make a mess They decide to rescue the Red pen It s daring dangerous in a hilarious sequence of events they save the day and Little Red Pen RECOMMEND This is one to add to your Janet Stevens and Susan Stevens Crummel collection.

    I rounded up to 3 stars on this one because of the cool illustrations, and the fact that I have a thing for office supplies, especially pens I ve been known to linger in the pen aisle longer than normal, whatever normal is But red marks have a bad repution on school papers, and I had a hard time reconciling that as I read this book, targeted for children.

    I loved this book The story is reminiscent of The Little Red Hen only the players are all things found on a desk Their personalities are all familiar to us all The illustrations where superb Sisters Janet Stevens and Susan Stevens Crummel make a delightful team for the creation of children s books.

    Awful writing Too wordy and extreme in the mission of the office supplies Great idea gone off the rails Too bad, as illustrations are excellent.
