Ever wondered what it's like to own magical items? Then The Know-It-All Pencil, the fifth in the Invisible Magic Wand series by talented author Lois Wickstrom, will surely satisfy your curiosity. In this installment, Caspian opens another un-birthday gift from his Grandpa. He is pleasantly surprised to find a pencil and some green paper. Caspian knows it can't just be any old pencil, so he tries it out. The pencil writes "Apple," leaving Caspian confused as there aren't any apples in the house. Curious to find out what it means, Caspian heads downstairs to his mother and Grandpa. His Grandpa knows what it means straight away, but the gift still leaves Caspian confused and even more eager to solve the mystery. With only two pieces of the puzzle, will Caspian finally get to the bottom of it all, and what other adventures await him?
The Know-It-All Pencil (Invisible Magic Wand) is jam-packed with adventure and intrigue from start to finish. Having read previous Invisible Magic Wand books, I know of Caspian's un-birthday gifts and how cool they are, and this one was no different. It amazes me every time I read one of Lois Wickstrom's books, as they are written to a high and professional standard and have attractive and adorable illustrations to go with them. Nicolas Milano has done a great job as always. Lois writes her stories simplistically, which, in turn, will allow children to follow along more easily. If your child is into magic, then you can't go wrong with this series as their imaginations will run wild and free!
