Another of those strange animals thrown up at Unseen University in the period where the Hogfather was temporarily gone and the surplus belief slopping around had to go somewhere. The Stealer of Pencils took the form of a bird with a most curious beak: The beak ends in a shape akin to that of a pencil sharpener. The Wizards fed it pencils like a pet, and tamed it to the point where it hopped onto Mustrum Ridcully's hand.
