Sammie loves the color and wants to keep the purple pencil; but in his mind he can hear his classmates making ugly fun of him in class. He is so sad that he does not even want to go to school anymore.

Then suddenly, in the bright light stands this funny looking little character and says, “Psst-psst, what’s up Sammie? Believe in yourself, keep the pencil and you will be fine!” and Toley Ranz disappears reminding Sammie to share the psst-psst with others.

Sammie's Big Decision book 2

One day in school, Mario is very ugly and calls Sammie’s purple pencil a “sissy  color pencil”. Sammie is very upset and thinks about throwing the purple pencil away. Toley Ranz appears, “Is that what you really want?” Of course that’s not what he really wants, but how can he get Mario to stop making fun of him? Sammie asks his mom, and she said almost the same thing as Toley Ranz did.

“Do what you believe in.” But it’s difficult and Sammie does not sharpen his purple pencil anymore. He is waiting for Toley Ranz, but no sign of his new friend. Then, Mario was really ugly again. That’s enough now, thought Sammie and sharpened his purple pencil. Suddenly, he hears this tiny little “psst-psst”; “This is awesome, Sammie, you really have found your very own psst-psst,“ says Toley Ranz.
