No one will play with Pocu, so he slouches off to amuse himself-and finds a wonderful feather. Swish. He makes the flowers bloom. Swish. He creates a great, murmuring shadow with two eyes burning bright. Pocu wants a playmate, but when the shadow follows him into the jungle and starts taking over the game, he fears he's created a monster. And it's up to him to find a way to handle his dangerous creation.
Dee Lillegard's beautifully written text shows how a powerful imagination can take on a life of its own, and Susan Guevara's rich, stunning paintings bring Pocu's magical world to life.
