The Secret Subway by Shana Corey (Author), Red Nose Studio (Illustrations)
From an acclaimed author and a New York Times Best Illustrated artist comes the fascinating, little-known and true! story of New York City s first subway. New York City in the 1860s was a mess: crowded, disgusting, filled with garbage. You see, way back in 1860, there were no subways, just cobblestone streets. That is, until Alfred Ely Beach had the idea for a fan-powered train that would travel underground. On February 26, 1870, after fifty-eight days of drilling and painting and plastering, Beach unveiled his masterpiece and throngs of visitors took turns swooshing down the track.

The Pencil by Allan Ahlberg
"One day that little pencil made a move, shivered slightly, quivered somewhat . . . and began to draw."

But it's not long before the complaints begin — "This hat looks silly!" "My ears are too big!" — until the poor pencil has no choice but to draw . . . an eraser. Oh no! In the hands of Allan Ahlberg and Bruce Ingman, can anything but havoc and hilarity ensue?
