Here are a few things that sometimes happen: HAPPY THINGS An unpopular Black Crayon proves to a Little Girl how useful he really is. SAD THINGS On a very hot day, an Ice-Cream Cone waits...and waits...to be eaten. EXCITING THINGS A Papa catches cold, so his Little Boy gets to go to work instead! These nine very short stories for very young readers -- culled from Newbery Honor author Avi's first book and illustrated by Caldecott Honor artist Marjorie Priceman -- ingeniously capture the funny, surprising spirit of a child's imagination.
