Book Review/Giveaway: Sasha and the Magic Pen. Ends May 5th, 2012.


Sasha and the Magic Pen written by Saragine Francois and illustrated by Javier Duarte.

About the Book:  Have you ever wished you could trace a friend from a story you like and magically they appear? In this short story, Sasha is a 10 year old girl who accidently discovers the true magic of a pen she found buried in the school playground. After Sasha realizes the friend she drew from the tale will not only vanish from every book, but the story will become a reality if she does not get her friend back into the tale.


My Review: Sasha and the Magic Pen are about a little girl who wished she had friends to play with.  During reading time with her mom and sister, Sasha read the story about Friends and imagined that the main character in the story Ursa, was her best friend.

On her way to school the next day, Sasha came across a shining object in the playground which turned out to be a pen. She picked the pen off the ground, and placed it in her pocket. While working on her assignment, Sasha decided to use the pen she found to trace her favorite character, Ursa. While erasing a mistake she made, she notices the image was moving and lifting itself from the paper. Standing in front of her was Ursa from the story book.

Now Sasha has to explain not only to her sister about the magic pen, who did not believe her at first, but to her mother. 

What an interesting book! I enjoyed reading every page. I couldn’t wait to find out what happened next. I wish Javier Duarte’s illustration was in color instead of black and white. Overall, a fun and delightful book. I also love Sasha meaning of friends on page 55. I recommend this book for children ages 6-8. A MUST READ!
