The Obstinate Pen by Frank W. Dormer

The pen Uncle Flood receives as a gift is not your average pen.  The minutes Uncle Flood begins to write the pen changes the words.  He tries again and the same happens again.  Uncle Flood is not happy and throws the pen out the window and into the hands of a cop trying to write a ticket.  As the officer tries to write the ticket, same thing happens to him.  Repeat - same.  The pen continues its journey in the same manner until he falls into the hands of Horace.  Horace sits down to draw and what do you suppose happened?!?  Funny book - 4 year old critic here thought it was hilarious.  He was literally rolling on the ground!  Beware of some "name calling" that you may want to properly prepare your audience about.
