Excerpt from




The Magic Pencil

a vehicle to drive youth toward self-esteem

INTRODUCTION


This story is about YoungStar Malcolm Bakersfield,

 his mysterious new classmate

 and a pencil that changes everything!


If you don’t understand him at first,

Try reading aloud then you’ll have a thirst.

‘Malc’ has something to say about everything,

Even if no one’s really listening.

You might agree with him or have a different view,

It’s OK wit him if it’s OK witchu!

Now, read his story, then you’ll see,

Malc’s a lot like all, us, we.


 Things are seldom what they seem--

once you see a pencil gleam!
