“Oh, I’d like to be the raindrop falling on a tortoise shell. I’d like to be the puddle for a big bullfrog. I’d like to be the welcoming umbrella for an elephant. But most of all… I’d like to be the window for a wise old dog.” Through whimsical ideas and pictures brimming with love and life, life’s endless wonders and possibilities are explored with just a touch of nonsense. Your young readers and listeners will giggle and wonder at these playful ideas that leap off the page through author/artist Philip Stead’s gorgeous illustrations.
