I’m Ralphie the pencil. I was born in Australia and I am owned by Shyler Rasquinho. She is one of my best friends. I love writing – that’s my hobby.
My favourite place to go to is class because I meet so many new people and they use me. My favourite people are people with soft hands. It feels very comfortable. I love to eat rubbers. It is like my treat. If I am good, no sharpening is needed and by the way I have only one leg.My best friends are Shyler, Mary, Bob and Austin. Pens are very mean to me but I love humans.
One day, it was the first day of school and I was nervous but Shyler told me there is nothing to be scared of. I was scared that my point might come off and Shyler said if it does, she could always sharpen me and I stopped being scared. That was the end of it. I continue to live a happy life with my best friend, Shyler.
An essay written by my niece Shyler which I found fascinating. Such imagination …! Have a hunch she will be a writer pretty soon 🙂
