Once upon a time in pencil school, a teacher named Mrs 2 told her class, 'Today we're going to write a story ' 'Yippee ' said the birthday pencil. 'Slammin? ' said the basketball pencil. 'Sharp ' said Little Red. So begins a hilarious re-telling of 'Little Red Riding Hood', in which a brave little red pencil finds her way through the many perils of story composition, faces a ravenous pencil sharpener (the Wolf 3000), and saves the day.
