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.
