Riddle me this:
I may have initials, but I do not have a name.
My purposes have brought myself plenty of fame.
I have brothers and sisters and cousins and more.
We make stories and pictures, written and drawn.
Unlike yourself and animals and plants,
We never grow but are tallest at first glance.
Our looks vary depending on colour and height,
But within all of us is a stick of graphite.
Our closest friend is a sheet of paper.
Guess what I am, and it might do you a favour.
I made up this riddle for fun. Hope you enjoy!
Hints for the answer are below.
I am wooden and narrow, with a point and a tip;
I am an object that nearly every student should equip.
