How to Draw: Flibber Jibber

This week's monster drawing lesson is FLIBBER JIBBER! The Flibber Jibber is really a pencil with arms and legs. He is very helpful to children in school who need to do their work. In this picture, the Flibber Jibber looks mad. Though he is rarely in a bad mood, he hates having his picture taken. He wants to be a pen when he grows up!

Thanks to Katie W. of West Virginia for this great monster!
