Andrew Drew and Drew by Barney Saltzberg

I love finding little gems like this. Reminiscent of Harold and the Purple Crayon, this book is all about a boy, Andrew, and the world he creates with his pencil. "Andrew was a doodle boy." He creates drawings of things around him and things that he imagined. From a pig skateboarding on an alligator-shaped wave, to stairs that become a friendly dinosaur, there are surprises and magical discoveries at every turn.

The illustrations are simple pencil drawings but adorable. Many of the pages fold out to reveal the progress of Andrew's drawings, adding a feeling of experiencing the drawings as though he was just creating them. Truly charming and worth a re-read.
