Description - Penny the Pencil by Eileen O'Hely

After a summer spent on dusty bookshop shelves sellotaped on special offer to a dictionary, Penny the Pencil is thrilled to be bought by 8-year-old Ralph the day before school starts. Unlike Penny, Ralph is not looking forward to going back to school. He is a poor student, and an easy target for Bert, the class bully. Penny feels sorry for Ralph, and as her spelling is so good - having been sellotaped to Dictionary all summer - she manipulates his hand so that he spells correctly and gets full marks on his tests. This behaviour is not appreciated by the other residents of Ralph's pencil case, and terrible events ensue.

Author Biography - Eileen O'Hely

Eileen O'Hely was born in Melbourne, Australia in 1972. After spending the whole of the nineties at university, studying languages and astrophysics, she decided she'd had enough and went to work in the computer industry. Ostensibly employed as a technical writer, Eileen soon found that the satirical observations of her workmates which she posted on her Icky Picky of the Day mailing list were far more fun to write and reached a far wider and more appreciative audience than that of her technical manuals. So she quit her job, moved to Europe, and spent the next two years sight-seeing in summer, pretending to snowboard in winter, and writing in her spare moments. Eileen currently lives in Turin, Italy with her husband Glenn and their collection of fluffy animals.
