About the Author

Stacey Corrigan grew up in Elkton, MI and began writing as a columnist for a local newspaper in high school. She graduated Michigan State University with a BA in Elementary Education and Saginaw Valley State University with a MA in Early Childhood Education. While completing her college coursework, Stacey fell in love with picture books and has used them to teach and entertain her students for years.
Stacey lives in Michigan with her husband, their two sons, and an adorable beagle named Sadie.

For as long as he can remember, Steve has had a pencil in his hand. With this love of drawing it was only natural that he would follow a career in the arts. After many successful years as a graphic designer, working for a variety of publishing companies, he decided to follow his heart and do what he loves most - create weird and wacky characters.

When he is not drawing, which isn't very often, Steve likes to volunteer his time at his local primary school, where he encourages young minds to explore their creativity through drawing and painting. He's an animated movie fan and hopes that maybe one day one of his characters will play a leading role.

Born in the UK, he now lives in Australia with his family and an assortment of characters who are waiting in the wings to be brought to life on paper.

As a middle school teacher for 32 years, losing pencils is a daily, even period by period occurrence. This book is adorable with bright and colorful illustrations to capture the emotion and humor of this very common problem. What a fun read aloud and what a fun way to kick of every school year by sharing this book with a new class!

This colorful, humorous picture book will appeal to young readers and to the adults who are reading it to them. As a former elementary school educator and early literacy mentor, I particularly appreciated the higher-level vocabulary words the author included in her text. Examples: Pesky, pried, ambushed, paradise, challenges, massive, and shavings. Defining these words with children makes for many 'teachable' moments. Children will love the sassy 'pencil eater' character and will cheer it on from start to finish! My favorite scene is where the pencil eater is shaking a salt/pepper dispenser filled with eraser sprinkles on top of the pencil shavings sitting on his tongue. Hilarious. Highly-recommended! Note from reviewer: I was given access to a digital copy of this book by the publisher. I was not compensated in any way to read this book, write this review, or post this review on this or any other site. ###############

This story is OWG – Out of this World GREAT! As a retired second grade teacher it’s exactly the story I’d buy for my class. Stacey captured the biggest problem my kids had every year for 33 years . . . losing pencils. Now I know what really happened -- A BIG F – A - T PENCIL EATER ate them! Read the books to find out how even a Pencil Eater can find a happy ending. I love, love, LOVE this book!
