Best friends Matt and Craz couldn't be more different. Matt loves order, while Craz is always scattered and loves to live on the edge. Matt is learning to live with his parents' divorce and deal a distant older brother, while Craz lives in a house full of siblings and two loving, yet harried, parents. One thing the boys do have in common is their love for cartooning. But thanks to the school paper gatekeeper, Skip Turkle, they seem destined to never see their cartoons make the school paper. All that changes one night when the boys click on a link to buy a pen that promises to help them DRAW BETTER NOW! And when the pen arrives, Matt and Craz quickly realise that this is no ordinary pen - whatever they draw ends up coming to life! The two friends start small with their drawings: bags of cash, cool gadgets. But then they take riskier moves and get a little bolder in their magical drawings… and when things don't go to plan, the boys discover that little hiccups that happen off the page aren't that easily erased.

A magical pen causes creative chaos in this quirky, comic-style story from the Sid Fleischman Award–winning author of Milo. Best friends Matt and Larry “Craz” Crazinski couldn’t be more different. Matt loves order, while Craz lives on the edge. The boys share a passion for cartooning, but thanks to the school paper gatekeeper (and kind-of bully), Skip Turkle, it seems their cartoons will never be published. But then the boys discover a pen that promises to help them DRAW BETTER NOW!—and quickly realize it’s no ordinary pen: Whatever they draw comes to life! They start small with their drawings—bags of cash, cool gadgets. Next, they get their pesky English teacher to take a unique and extended vacation. But when the boys get a little bolder in their magical drawings, they realize that things don’t always end up as perfect as the art they create... In this funny, slightly zany, and ultimately heartwarming story, Sid Fleischman Award–winner Alan Silberberg demonstrates the power of friendship—and that the best life is not always sketched out in advance.

He's carrying it in his briefcase at his son's school for show-and-tell, and he thinks it's a fake. But he's about to find out just how real it is. Because the wolves are rapidly closing in. And if August Adams can't decode the secret in time, the world's balance of power will forever be altered.
