An unpopular Black Crayon proves to a Little Girl how useful he really is.
On a very hot day, an Ice-Cream Cone waits...and waits...to be eaten.
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.
