Synopsis by Alice Day
When Simon is threatened by a horrible monster, he receives help from an unexpected source -- his pens. This episode in the Reading Rainbow series features a visit with the author of Simon's Book, Henrik Drescher, who explains his inspiration for the story to host LeVar Burton. At a printing plant, Burton shows viewers the stages a book must go through before it appears on bookstore shelves. Other books read by the young reviewers are Me and Neesie by Eloise Greenfield, Begin at the Beginning by Amy Schwartz, and What's Under My Bed? by James Stevenson.
