'Take me for a walk!' cries the line in Gregory's red pencil. So Gregory draws the line straight, and draws it thick, and draws it thin, and draws it in reds and yellows and blues and mixes them all together. But the line gets bored so Gregory draws squiggles, zigzags, squares, circles and triangles that turn into houses and suns and pyramids and wonderful animals and people with funny faces. And Gregory finds himself swooping and diving with the line over more and more exciting scenes, until the line gets tired and Gregory puts it back in the red pencil and says goodnight. A wonderfully fresh and inventive story that tells children about shapes and colours and will inspire them to draw, this is the first book by a new author-artist whose crayony pictures, warm colours and appealing characters have great charm.
