The Little Red Pen always does all the work while all her helpers do nothing. However, when the Little Red Pen disappears, will they be able to finish grading the papers before the students come back to school?

The plot is kind of normal for a children’s book, but I liked the humor and characters in it. Also, I liked how they used office supplies in a school to tell the story, and it made the story much more amusing. :)

The illustrations were pretty good, but the colors made it kind of hard to see/read the text. Also, the type of font they used and the color of it made it even more even difficult to see/read.

All in all, it is a pretty good book, but I wish it had a little something more to the plot.

Where I Got It:
