{Synopsis} – In this funny and light-hearted picture book, a fussy eraser tries to keep the pages clean by erasing the scribbles of a mischievous pencil. But before long, the eraser discovers what can happen when two opposing forces come together to have fun. With humor and a keen eye for play, Max Amato crafts a delightful story that reveals the joys of collaborative imagination.

{My thoughts} – Perfect is a brilliantly written picture book. The eraser in this book is constantly trying to keep things perfectly clean on each of the pages. Pencil however, is the complete opposite, drawing and scribbling and making so many messes that eraser is always cleaning up.

I really enjoyed this book with my daughter. It helped to show that even though messes are made, that they can be cleaned up. It also helped to show her that some messes can be made into something beautiful!

The pages in this book are written in short sentences and have really simple illustrations. It is easy to understand and easy to follow along with. My daughter seemed to enjoy having the book read to her. She even wanted to read it again.

I recommend this book for any child. It is one of those books that can have the greatest impact. It’s a simple and easy to read book. Hopefully it has the potential to become a much loved book in your home as it seems to be on the path of becoming in our home.

Final Conclusion: 5 Star Rating.
