Eraser Blog Tour (review & giveaway)




Eraser 
By Anna Kang 
Illustrated by Christopher Weyant 
September 1, 2018 
Two Lions 

Eraser is always cleaning up everyone else’s mistakes. Except for Ruler and Pencil Sharpener, none of the other school supplies seem to appreciate her. They all love how sharp Pencil is and how Tape and Glue help everyone stick together. Eraser wants to create so that she can shine like the others. She decides to give it a try, but it’s not until the rubber meets the road that Eraser begins to understand a whole lot about herself. 

Inspired by a school essay their daughter Kate wrote in the third grade, the author and illustrator behind Theodor Seuss Geisel Award–winner You Are (Not) Small have created a desktop drama about figuring out who you are, finding happiness, and the importance of second, third, and maybe even fourth chances. 






Eraser is stuck cleaning up everyone’s mistakes while Pencil gets all the credit and praise. Determined to create and not just erase, Eraser sets out on her own and discovers some surprising truths. 

Anna Kang’s Eraser is a big-hearted picture book full of amusing puns, delightful characters, lively illustrations, and important lessons. Together, author Kang and illustrator Weyant, bring to life the endearing world of school supplies, giving each supply a distinct and entertaining personality...and of course, Eraser is the most lovable of them all! Kang’s engaging text, witty storytelling, and the kid-friendly desktop drama will have little readers giggling and rooting for Eraser. Kang’s message about embracing mistakes, cooperation, and discovering who you are and all the amazing things you have to offer, is sweetly delivered and will be easily understood by little readers. 

Eraser, with its fun story, captivating illustrations, and unforgettable heroine, is sure to charm and engage little readers! 



Anna Kang and Christopher Weyant are the creators of Theodor Seuss Geisel Award winner You Are (Not) Small and its follow-ups That’s (Not) Mine and I Am (Not) Scared. Christopher’s work can be seen routinely in The New Yorker magazine and his cartoons are syndicated worldwide. As an author, Anna regularly goes through first, second, and third drafts. Chris wears down many erasers while making his art. This husband-and-wife team lives in New Jersey with their two daughters and their rescue dog.

Eternal Seas 
by Lexi Rees

Such a small parcel shouldn't cause experienced smugglers much trouble, but this parcel is far from normal. Lost and scared after a violent storm, Finn and his sister, Aria, take shelter on a remote island. They discover the parcel contains a relic belonging to a long forgotten people. Locked inside are powers which will change their lives, and the world, forever. As Finn realises his connection to the relic, a vision strikes him - but what does it mean? Who should they trust? And if they decide to follow their hearts rather than their orders, will they manage to deliver the relic in one piece? Chased across the seas as they try to solve the mysteries within the parcel, the fate of this ancient people depends on them. Finn and Aria must choose between what is right and what is easy - and time is running out ... With brave protagonists and life lessons of courage and honour, Eternal Seas speaks from a `flawed' character perspective that everyone can relate to. Young readers who enjoy daring plots and exciting adventures will delight in this original story of different races and tough choices. 



Lexi Rees spends as much time as possible sailing and horse riding, both of which she does spectacularly badly. Attempts at writing whilst horse riding have been disastrous, so Eternal Seas was written on a boat; the storm described in the book was frighteningly real.
