Sylvester and the Magic Pebble (William Steig)
We were thrilled to figure out that William Steig also wrote Shrek!
When we discussed the story, the kids said they were impressed with the nice wishes that the main character made in the beginning. We were a little sad when the parents kept searching and searching and he was actually right there (he turns into a rock where the parents have a picnic). It was a relief to see the happy ending!
We learned a lesson. Be very very careful about what you wish for.
