Mice Make Trouble

I loved this book. In this book there is a little boy who secretly borrows his sister's magical colored pencils. He knew he shouldn't but he wanted to see if they really did make things come alive. He shuts his door to his room and open studios on his bare wall...I changed the word to canvas simply because I try not to put such ideas into my 2 year olds head. :) He draws a truck and it comes to life but it is too small for him to ride in so he tries several attempts to draw some mice but each one comes out wrong so he abandons them and draws a hedgehog. What happens next can only be described as a mess but ends well as he uses the colored pencils to create a teacher to help the naughty mice behave. We all really liked it.
