The Adventures of Pencil and Screwbot

In this post, we will see the book The Adventures Of Pencil And Screw Bolt by Yuri Druzhkov.

About the book

Our Dear Little Friends,

In this book you will meet two very outstanding characters. Pencil who is an artist and a real magician, and Screwbolt, a little iron man, who is a very cleaver mechanic. Both are very nice people and we hope you will like them and will want to learn from them.

If so, write to us and tell us how you understood this book and what it has taught you.

We get very many letters from our young readers. The boy wrote “Please tell me where I can learn to draw like Pencil. I would them draw myself a bicycle, a toy gun and a two toy cars.”

And another boy wants to learn to draw for a very different reason: “I want to draw a magic school where all my chums could learn to be magicians. Ans I also want to draw a river by our house so that granny doesn’t have to go far with her washing. She’s old you know.”

Frankly, we like the second letter better. Why do you think?

The book was translated from Russian by Fainna Glagoleva and drawings are by Nikolai Grishin. The book was was published in 1973 by Progress.
