Publisher Comments:

This is a favorite from Bob Munsch's live storytelling sessions.

Brigid is on the trail of the ultimate felt marker. At first, she's satisfied to be drawing wonderful pictures. But soon she must have the markers that wash off with water. Then she needs the markers that smell.

But she's happiest when she gets the super-indelible-never-comes-off-till-you're-dead markers. She draws brighter-than-real lemons and roses and then goes too far: Brigid draws on herself. Nothing will remove the color, so Brigid reaches deep into the box of markers, finds the people-colored marker, and covers up all the other colors. She looks better than before, too good to be true.

And Brigid is certain that no one will find out her secret. Especially since her father awakes from a nap and looks in the mirror. He looks a bit too good to be true too...

Synopsis:

Brigid is having fun with her markers until she goes overboard and paints on herself with her super-indelible-never-comes-off-till-you're-dead markers.Noth ing will remove the color, so she finds the purple marker and covers up all the other colors. She looks better than before--too good to be true.
