Meet Brown – the least used pencil in the box. He’s tall, geeky and lonely. Brown envies Red, Purple, Blue and all the other pencils who have fun colouring and playing together. Dark Green is trustworthy, Pink listens well, Orange has fun, and everybody likes Red! Brown doesn’t smile very often because he doesn’t get used much and hardly ever needs sharpening.
When Brown asks the other pencils why no one likes him, he discovers that to have friends, he needs to be a good friend. If Brown learns to use all of the friendship skills the other pencils have, he can make friends and have fun too!

Every child has secrets, and many secrets are fun to keep—for instance, a surprise birthday gift for Mom, or a secret handshake with a young friend.
