Eraser Blog Tour (review & giveaway)

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. Visit them at and

My favorite school supplies are pens--especially the gel pens that just flow across the page and if they come in a rainbow of colors, even better. Great for taking notes, doodling, as well as hand-drafting poetry.

Pretty, colorful pens. Creative stickers, jazzed out planners, new clothes, new purse :)

Makes me wish I were teaching again. I loved introducing the kids to fun new books. Eraser looks like a super book.

"what's YOUR favorite school supply and why?" Nice paper! Like, I knew a girl in middle school who'd been to France and she came back with these books of crazy-cool lined paper for taking notes in! Like, why couldn't our lined papers look that cool??

My favorite school supply was always crayons. I loved to color.
