Overview

Things That Sometimes Happen: Very Short Stories for Little Listeners by Avi, Marjorie Priceman

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.
