Sylvester and the Magic Pebble (William Steig)

This book is part of the book tournament we are doing at our school. It is a great story.

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.

Goodreads summary:

One rainy day, Sylvester finds a magic pebble that can make wishes come true. But when a lion frightens him on his way home, Sylvester makes a wish that brings unexpected results.
