Just in time for the back-to-school season, this imaginative story captures every kid's wildest dream-homework that does itself
When Tony falls asleep without finishing his homework, his unruly school tools come to life to get the job done. Pencil and Pen get the story started, along with Eraser, but when Fountain Pen joins in, all ink breaks loose A little creativity goes a long way, as Tony's homework turns into a wacky tale about the Planet Splotch. Tony might not be able to hand in this particular assignment, but it deserves an A+ for originality.
