Baker & Taylor
In her excitement at finding the most brilliant, most permanent set of color pens, Brigid gets ink all over herself, but thanks to a people-colored marker, she comes to look like her old self again--and brighter than ever.

Perseus Publishing
Brigid really loves markers. But when she draws on herself with super-permanent ink, she knows that spells trouble.

Firefly Books Ltd

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…

& Taylor

When Brigid asks for colored markers, she assures her mother that she will use them responsibly, but one day the temptation becomes too great
