I thought I had seen it all! I do not remember pads like this from my youth. One scribbles over the surface of this special paper with a pencil or marker, and an image appears. I tried it, and got a rocking horse! Perhaps you will ask with me what "Fable Friends" means at the top of the pad. I have not the slightest idea!
