Ahhhh...the power and wonder of a child's imagination as it comes to life with the glimpse of a broken branch on a nearby tree.  A young pig gathers that branch and in the hands and mind of the pig, the branch transforms into the fishing rod that leads to the mouth of a dangerous shark and the baton of a proud band major who is leading the parade.

As the voice of concern and doom beats a constant tune of discouragement and doubt, the delighted imagination of the pig keeps creating fantastic stories and opportunities for the pig to savor with the stick as his bridge to enchantment.

The perfect story for children whose imaginations love to take them places.  Perhaps a challenge for those who think more concretely.

A celebration of the power of imagination from the Theodor Seuss Geisel Honor Award-winning creator of Not a Box.

Experience the thrill of the moment when pretend feels so real that it actually becomes real!

Following the critically acclaimed Not a Box, this book proves that a stick is not always just a stick. Whether it's conducting an orchestra, painting a masterpiece, or slaying a dragon—give a child a stick and let imagination take over and the magic begin.--from the publisher
