Eraser is always cleaning up everyone else’s mistakes. Except for Ruler and Pencil Sharpener, none of the other school supplies seem to appreciate her. They all love how sharp Pencil is and how Tape and Glue help everyone stick together. Eraser wants to create so that she can shine like the others. She decides to give it a try, but it’s not until the rubber meets the road that Eraser begins to understand a whole lot about herself.
Inspired by a school essay their daughter Kate wrote in the third grade, the author and illustrator behind Theodor Seuss Geisel Award–winner You Are (Not) Small have created a desktop drama about figuring out who you are, finding happiness, and the importance of second, third, and maybe even fourth chances.

REVIEWS for Eraser:
“Kang tells a good, pun-filled story, and Weyant’s anthropomorphic school supplies are both enjoyable and emotive…The book will find a loving home among readers who like a softer tone. A sweet parable on cooperation.” —Kirkus Reviews
“Finally, the mighty Eraser gets her own book and distinctive voice in this desktop drama…Puns abound in the clever writing. The lively and expressive cartoon characters’ features and figures are done in ink, watercolor, and brush pens, which animate their pedestrian functions into art. Fun for kids who spend important learning time with these objects.” —Booklist
“A delightful picture book that emboldens readers to embrace mistakes and elevates the eraser to hero status. A fun addition for storytimes and classroom read-alouds.” —School Library Journal
