Rafiq looked puzzled and surprised at the same time. "I cannot believe it," he said. "A pen that can talk."

A unique idea—a talking pen. In an age where cell phones seem most kids' friends, the author resuscitates the original means of communication: the pen! A talking writing utensil becomes an immigrant boy's best friend. Not only will children learn to read, but have fun at the same time. Mr. Inker will bring smiles to immigrant and American children alike. The stories may even cause a chuckle or two. Teachers and parents will like the learning within each story and the learning section at the back of each book.
