When Zora’s mother dies of Leukemia, Zora is miserable. To make matters worse, she loses the warm spark that gives her imagination, which her mother used to call her Voom. Zora just wants to forget. So, one day, she lets it all out. She scribbles over the drawing she traced for her little sister, Frankie’s, birthday. She scribbles page after page with her dark green pencil. Soon after, they get pulled into a world named Pencilvania… which is filled with Zora’s drawings. The creatures here think she eats balloons and is secretly two hundred feet tall. But, to make things even worse, the scribbles have kidnapped Frankie! Zora knows she has to save her little sister. But will she be able to rescue the only person who matters to her anymore?

I really enjoyed reading the adventures Zora went through in Pencilvania to save her sister with her seven-legged horse, Airrol. The illustrations really looked like they were drawn by the characters in the story as it went along. I liked the characters a lot. I thought they were exciting, funny, and realistic.
