SYLVESTER AND THE MAGIC PEBBLE
Caldecott Award Winner
"He was so scared and worried.
Being helpless, he felt hopeless."
Sylvester loves to collect pebbles, and he can’t believe his luck when he finds a magic pebble that can make wishes come true. But, faced with life or death danger, Sylvester turns himself into a pebble. Now, unable to hold himself- he is a pebble after all- he is unable to wish himself back into a donkey. Steig is a master storyteller and this one won the Caldecott for best picture book.
From the Reviewer A.A., a retired librarian:
I loved the sense of family love in this story. My favorite part is when Mr. Duncan finds the red pebble. I read this to my middle school students and they loved it.
