Whoops! That’s not right.
Looks like a job for the eraserheads!The three eraserheads—an owl, a crocodile, and a pig—live atop three pencils in the land of paper, rulers, letters, and numbers. Their job is to help a little boy correct his mistakes. But one day they make a mistake of their own—and what happens next is something nobody expected.
“Banks folds reassuring messages about mistakes into this inventively illustrated title” —Booklist
“Kulikov delivers a dizzying visual stew that includes everything from the boy’s penciled and crayoned drawings, the erasers’ shiny opacity, a Sendakian Wild Thing and a big frothy wave evocative of Hiroshige.” —Kirkus Reviews
"This complex tale will intrigue those adventurers ready for a Jumanji-like experience of jumping into the arduous but rewarding creative process of persevering through mistakes." —School Library Journal
