Synopsis

A Pebble Story by Emil Sher

Let's go pebbling! A child's imagination can find something magical in just about anything - even an ordinary pebble. In this colourful board book, a little boy uses red and black pebbles to make a face. But when it comes to the teeth, wouldn't green ones be perfect? With bucket in hand, he and his mum set out to find those just-right pebbles. He finds pebbles on the road, in the river, and even in his dreams, but there are no green pebbles anywhere. The solution is easy - all it takes is some green paint, and before you know it, his pebble face is sporting a big green pebble smile. Perfect for very young children, this whimsical book shows how imagination and creativity can make anything possible. Sparse yet lyrical text describes the idyllic time the little boy spends with his mother, while the charming illustrations reflect the simple pleasures of a day in the country.
