Sylvester and the Magic Pebble by William Steig is a great story. In the beginning Sylvester had a hobby, he collected stones. He found a magic pebble and was walking home when he saw a lion on Strawberry Hill. He got startled and confused and he wished he was a rock. He stood there frozen for all the months of the year except May. If you want to find out what happens to Sylvester, then read this book.
I liked this book because it was funny when Sylvester turned himself into a stone. I also liked when his mother and father were looking for him. They asked a lot of other animals to help them find their child. I also liked when Sylvester’s parents had a picnic on the rock that was Sylvester.
I recommend this book because it teaches others to think before saying things. If you think you need to work on this than then this book is for you.
